One of the first thing that draws me as a reader to a book is the cover. As an author, I’m always curious about the design involved in a cover: the colors, the fonts, the imagery, etc. The covers I share here are not a promotion for the book itself, simply an admiration of the cover or aspects of it.
PEGASUS, by Robin McKinley
My impression: I love the elements of this cover. It is so simple at first glance, but it is quite a dramatic cover. The spatial aspects are perfect: the hills in the distance, the receding storm clouds, the lighting. All highlight the two figures on the cover. The windblown figure of the young woman looking up to the sky paired with the pegasus in mid-flight looking down at her is as fantastical as it is powerful.
