Hey peeps, welcome to another Beautiful Covers! I’m working my way through the rainbow, so check out the rest of the colors when they come out over the next several weeks!
Today’s color is: pink!
Pink is my favorite color, and because of that I am simply just drawn to covers with pink on them. But they have to be the right shade of pink, not that gaudy, awful purple-pink that people think is pink but is really just a bright violet-fuscia color. Yeah. You know what I’m talking about.
I actually don’t own a lot of books with pink on the cover as the primary color, which makes me sad! But I do have enough to make this list, so here are five of my favorite pink covers:
As this is my favorite manga series of all time, I couldn’t not include this in my list. There are so many beautiful covers, and even a few that have a lot of pink in them, but I love this first volume cover. It shows the main character, Tamahome and Miaka, and it kind of shows a glimpse into what goes on in the story. It’s beautiful and I absolutely love the art style.
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (collector’s edition from Target)
Fangirl was one of my favorite reads of 2014, and so I was so excited when the collector’s editions came out and one of them was pink! I had to have the pink one. Had to. So I got it and I love it and it’s beautiful simplicity. I love Levi and Cath on the cover and how the typography is simple, but clean. It’s just a beautiful cover, in my opinion, because of the simpleness.
I can finally say that I’ve read this book! And by the way, the covers for this trilogy companion series are beautiful! Look at that cover! The Eiffel Tower! The typography! The pink sunset kind of thing going on! This is simply beautiful, plus it has a nice texture. Love it.
4. Chobits vol. 6 by CLAMP
Was I not serious when I said last week with the yellow covers that these covers of Chobits are gorgeous? LOOK AT HER DRESS. THE CURTAIN. THE EVERYTHING. I love this cover, as I do all the covers for this series, but as pink is my favorite color I’m going to have to say that this one is probably my favorite.
5. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Okay, this entire trilogy is beyond gorgeous, and though most of this one is orange I’m still counting it as pink because there are various shades of it, not just in that one corner. LOOK AT THEM FLOATING MAJESTICLY. Look at the stars and the way the nebula makes them stand out. The typography is sleek and crisp. The models do a wonderful job portraying the characters they’re supposed to look like in the story. Just… yes. I’m melting.
So there you have it for this week’s Beautiful Covers! I’m loving this series because it not only lets me share such amazing covers, but it also lets me stare at them for as long as I want while I’m writing the post, hahaha!
What are some of your favorite pink covers? What do you think of my selection? Let me know!
