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: orange!
Orange is a fun color that I think really brightens and livens up many things, and so here are some of the covers I think are lovely with orange:
I love, love, LOVE these covers so much. Each showcases a different part of the world and I think that it does so in a classy, simple way. The orange hues really reflect what sunsets probably look like on the golden coast, so this is just lovely. Plus the typography is sleek and clean.
2. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
This cover is not only pretty, but it’s really cool because when you remove the dust jacket there is a lot of writing on the cover and it looks wicked cool. I’m a sucker for nebulas and clouds and such, so this just speaks to me. Plus, space.
3. Fire Falling by Elise Kova
CAN WE JUST APPRECIATE THE BEAUTIFUL ART ON THIS ONE? Because wow, I love this cover so much. I love that it showcases Vhalla and Aldrick and that it shows their personalities in this book really well. The oranges in this cover are much more toned down and subtle, but still there as it shows Aldrick’s fire power around them. And the typography and everything about it is beautiful.
Celaena is bae. I love this cover and this book because ALL THE FEELS. OH MAN. But also because the covers for these books are so perfect: they always show Celaena as a warrior on the front, and her more formal side on the back. The fire colors on this cover really kind of reflect what happens in the book because there’s a lot of chaos that ensues, for sure. I think the stance she has is strong and that it speaks to who she is.
5. Firelight by Sophie Jordan
Now, I know a lot of people don’t like faces on covers, but I love this cover so much! This whole trilogy, really, is very lovely and I think that the way it shows Jacinda (the main character) on this cover is awesome because it’s a story about dragons and she is a dragon, so having the scales on her face is a great way to show what she is. I love iiiiiit.
So there you have it for this week’s Beautiful Covers! I almost completely forgot about it as I’m trying to post every Thursday on a new color, so… yeah. But I didn’t miss it!
Let me know some of your favorite orange colored covers and what you think of my choices!
