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.
Remember when cassette tapes were popular?
Be prepared to get kind of nostalgic about cassette tapes (but not really). It was a big part of my childhood like most people born pre-2000s. I remember going on family roadtrips and listening to old cassette tapes my parents were force us to listen to; pulling the magnetic tape from its case just because; and watching the spools go round and round.
Thinking about cassette tapes made me wonder if it would be a popular cover trend. And voilà! These are my favorite from the small batch I could find.
TREND: Cassette Tapes
Best cassette tape cover? Either Tricked or Way to Go. I like Tricked because of the colors and the use of the actual cassette tape. I like Way to Go because illustration awesomeness and the look of the magnetic tape coming out of the casing.
