Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 97: Fantasy (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 Kingdom Of The Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao, Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto, Rule by Ellen Goodlett, The Antidote by Shelley Sackier, The Lantern’s Ember by Colleen Houck, The Tiger At Midnight by Swati Teerdhala, Beware The Night by Jessika Fleck, The Fever King by Victoria Lee, We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal, Of Ice and Shadows by Audrey Coulthurst, The Girl King by Mimi Yu and Descendant Of The Crane by Joan He.

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.
