Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art:



Jen's Picks: 


If I would have planned this better I totally would have gone to a bookstore and just walked around looking at all the book covers I’d like a print of to hang on my wall. Instead I scoured my bookshelves and GoodReads.



  
Across the Universe by Beth Revis: How can you not LOVE this cover??



Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler: The heart shaped sea glass on the cover is a perfect fit for the book and a spot hanging on my wall. 

  
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater: The simplicity of the cover makes it so great.


Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss: This would be good to hang in an office or someplace you'd see it when you needed a boost of motivation.





Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll: This clothbound version is super super super pretty! I’d hang a canvas painting of this cover on my wall for sure.


Jamie's Picks

 

I'm just obsessed with the simplicity and beauty of this one. If the heart was something I stumbled upon on Etsy I would buy it and hang it in my home.


  I haven't read this (I own it!) but this cover change for the paperback is BEAUTIFUL.

Kimberly's Picks

 Sea Glass by Maria V. Snyder: Isn't it just gorgeous? I love the color and simplicity. 


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: This is my favorite edition of the book, I love the imagery, young girl with a book, sepia toned with the contrast of the rust colored curtains.



    For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund: Normally I don't care for the "prom/fancy dress clad girl with devastatingly beautiful face" covers. But this is so much better. It's simple and beautiful.


    What book covers would YOU hang as art work because they are so beautifuuuuul?

    1. Love the Across the Universe cover! It's a shame that they decided to redesign the covers after the second book. :/ I also really love the For Darkness Shows the Stars cover. Guess I have a thing for galaxy patterns, haha.

    14. Nice covers! I tended to choose covers with paintings as background rather than graphics or photos. But these are very effective.

    21. I don't know if I can think of enough for a top ten, but the first one that comes to mind is The Great Gatsby. It's just iconic.

    23. The one for For Darkness Shows the Stars is great. Then again, I'm all for the pretty dresses, as you'll see if you check out my list. I've never heard of that book, so I may have to check it out.

    24. I think the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland books have the most beautiful covers around..I just haven't owned any of it yet! :)

      The Book Thief is one of my favourite books. I haven't seen this cover before though but it looks really good! The girl reading and everything, it pulls the reader into the story even more.
