Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 65: Historical Fiction (Part 8)

Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

Some of my favourite covers this week include Without The Moon by Cathi Unsworth, The Strays by Emily Bitto, The Moonlit Garden by Corina Bomann, The Dust That Falls From Dreams by Louis de Bernières, A Tyranny Of Petticoats by Jessica Spotswood (Editor), Iron Cast by Destiny Soria, To The Bright Edge Of The World by Eowyn Ivey, The Stargazer’s Sister by Carrie Brown, Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham and Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey.

    So many pretty things! I have The Smell of Other People’s Houses out on loan from the library at the moment, and I’m tempted by Duels and Deception. Thanks for sharing!

    Some of those covers I would never imagine her historical fiction just by looking at them. And that cover for The Strays is gorgeous!

  3. Kay says:

    These are gorgeous! I have not read this one yet, but one of my favorite historical fiction covers is of ‘The French Lieutenants Woman’ by John Fowles. There are many covers for it, but it is the paperback 1998 edition. It is stunning. If it were not a John Fowles book, I probably would have still gotten it without knowing much about it because of that cover.

    Oh Jen, I adore these posts! There’s just something so striking about seeing the covers side by side <3
