Cover Crazy is hosted by The Book Worms. Each week, bloggers "admire the art and beauty of a book’s design, so I’m going to post minimal words. It is up to you to write how you feel and what you like about it the way you’d like to."
Why I Love This Cover:
This cover looks AWESOME. I always love covers with books on the cover. It’s one reason I recently had a cover crazy post featuring THE BOOK OF HEROES by Miyuki Miyabe. Books about books will always make me want to read them, especially when they’re books about people sucked into classic tales such as THE ARABIAN NIGHTS. Yes, please!
After looking up the summary online, I already appreciate this cover even more. There’s an Arabian palace looming in the background, with a boy facing it, his back to us (possibly the main character). Sand is beneath his feet, and beneath that, there are books, glorious books! And then empty space, because this world was created out of those books. There’s also a random necklace floating down there. I want to know more about it because it must be important to the story!
I also like the way the sand is whipping up around the title. Each letter is raised and cracked and dirty as though made from stone. It has a bit of a 3-D effect to it.
I *love* this cover and now I really want to read this book!
What do you think? What cover are you crazy about this week?
