Cover Awe: Movement, Embroidery, & More


Welcome back to Cover Awe!

An Inheritance of Magic of Benedict Jacka. A blue cover with a black cityscape in the background. In the middle is a gray cat. The borders have filigree, diamond gemstones, brown snakes, and orange leaves.

Sarah: Border!

Stuff! Filigree! CAT

Amanda: That cat is definitely up to some mischief!

Lara: I love the lighting so much!

Sneezy: Me too!

Forged by Magic by Jenn Wolfhart. An illustrated cover. A female orc with light green skin, pointed ears, and dark black hair in a ponytail is wearing brown pants and a brown crop top. An elven man with pale skin and white, shoulder length hair is wearing dark pants and a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Both are kneeling in front of a fire with their foreheads pressed together.

Elyse: I love the firelight in the background and the intimacy

Sneezy: I agree, this is lovely!

Carrie: I’m a sucker for a forehead bump

Sarah: Sorry I can’t hear you all over the incredible soothing sound of all the cozy vibes

Lara: Wow, that cover has me swooning

Manslaughter Park by Tirzah Price. A hot pick cover designed to look like it's cloth bound. The shape of a man and woman are facing each other with a framed image of a skull between them. The borders have teal and orange leaves with white and pink flowers. The entire cover is designed to look like the elements are embroidered.

Amanda: It may be hard to see, but all the designs look to be embroidered and that’s so cool! It also reminds me of an old clothbound cover.

Sarah: Oh my gosh the embroidery is so gorgeous. I wonder if this was generated or if an artist stitched it for the cover. (Also I love embroidery Instagram so much. So soothing.)

Lara: The combination of the embroidery and those gorgeous colours is really working for me.

Sneezy: I really really hope the cover’s actually embroidered.

Duet with a Siren Duke by Elise Kova. A blond merman with teal tail holds a woman. She has darker blond, curly hair and is wearing pink, backless dress. Bubbles and multicolored beads.

Lara: That is stunning!

Amanda: This entire series has such great covers! This one has the most movement, I think.

Sarah: I love how the light glows over both of them, and yes the movement and their facial expressions!

Sneezy: Holy! The way the watery environment and magic is expressed is MMMM-MUAH!
