Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 86: Fantasy (Part 7)

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 The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble, Not Your Villain by C.B. Lee, Fierce Like A Firestorm by Lana Popović, Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore, The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy, The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw, The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke, Reflection by Elizabeth Lim, For A Muse Of Fire by Heidi Heilig, Damsel by Elana K. Arnold, Furyborn by Claire Legrand and Baker Thief by Claudie Arseneault.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers and artists responsible for the beautiful covers below, but was unable to find this information for a number of those listed. If you know of an uncredited designer responsible for any of these book covers, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
