I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?
Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe) and discuss cover changes.
Neon lights! Big city! That’s what I wanna see! (I may or may not have “That’s the Life For Me” from James and the Giant Peach stuck in my head.)
Neon lights is the next trend I wanted to showcase. Like the post-it theme, I couldn’t find a lot of book covers with neon lights on it. I figured it would be fairly easy to find because designers can do excellent typography awesomeness with neon lights. Unfortunately, I only found four (which is better than none)! And those four are definitely fabulous ones.
TREND: Neon Lights
Best neon lights cover? Gahhhhh, it’s definitely between Love Me Back and Yes Please.
I love the simplicity of Love Me Back, the background color, and the lights not being turned on. I love Yes Please because HOT PINK BOLDNESS + AMY POEHLER! Need I say more?
