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.
Dolls and book covers, are they a good idea? Yes. (However, never google “dolls + book covers” unless you’re fully prepared or you’ll get a fright. The creepy dolls I saw when I searched for book covers will haunt me in my dreams.)
Dolls or action figures aren’t only toys you play with when you’re a child; they could be used as the model of a book cover. I love the creative ways book designers use them.
Best doll cover? I think…Dear Girls Above Me and the Anatomy of A Boyfriend/Single Girl are my favorite covers. I love that the scene is set up like a doll house in Dear Girls Above Me, and I love how each dolls private body parts are covered by the circular title card and the little notes pointing at certain body parts.
