TTT – Covers I’d Frame as Pieces of Art

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means – it’s time to link up with The Broke and the Bookish for a Top Ten Tuesday post.

toptentuesdayToday’s topic, as the title of this post already suggests, is covers I’d frame as pieces of art. So here are my answers.

1. Basically every book by Jasper Fforde. They are all gloriously pretty, just look at Something Rotten from the Thursday Next series.

2. A Room of One’s Own by Virgina Woolf. I have two editions of this book, one in German and one in English. I needed the second one in twelfth grade when I wrote an assignment about the essay and I quite like the minimalistic design of the edition.

a room or ones own cover

3. The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff. I basically bought this book because it looked pretty and had a nice texture. And I liked the summary on the back.

Isn't the cover beautiful?

4. The new covers of John Green books. sadly I got my books out of the old stack when I bought them last year and they did not come with the cool new covers, but I really like the new ones.

5. Bara roligt i Bullerby by Atrid Lindgren. Once upon a time when I was learning Swedish, I wanted to have one of the classical children books in he original version and I got one. I may only understand every fourth word but it looks pretty.

6. Whispers Underground by Ben Aaronovitch. Not much to say as to why I like it, I just do.

7. The Fairy Tales by Brothers Grimm. While I should have grown up reading these fairy tales, my Mom was not a big fan of them, so I lack knowledge in that department but last year I bought the complete box set (which I haven’t read yet, shh) and they are so pretty!!!

I actually don’t have a complete list of ten items but considering two of my points are ALL THE BOOKS EVER, I think we can let it slide, right?!

So, what about you, any favourite book covers?

Liked what you read? Please share it to spread the love!
  • Oh man, I love the Ben Aaronovitch covers. They very nearly made my list too!

    • Wilhelmina Upton

      This is the only one of his I’ve read so far though another one has been on my TBR list forever, long before I read Whispers Underground.

  • Keri B

    I’ve never even heard of Ben Aaronovitch. Should I have? I like that cover as well.

    Here’s mine.

    • Wilhelmina Upton

      I don’t know if you should have heard of him, depends on what you like to read, I guess. His is a bit sci-fi and supernatural magic meets reality.

  • I love the cover of Whispers Underground.

      It’s pretty great, I have to agree :)
