Book Covers Reimagined

Something must have been in the air last week, since a bunch of my favorite blogs were all about book cover designs!  Design is Mine and Unruly Things both highlighted a few of their favorite designs – I particularly liked this silhouette cover that Alyson featured:

But my absolute favorites were these re-imagined Harry Potter book covers by M.S. Corley featured on Black*Eiffel

I also really like the re-imagined covers for the Spiderwick Chronicles and Lemony Snicket – all designed to look like classic Penguin Books covers:

Love this…

…gorgeous and unbelievably romantic Valentine's Day screenprint from Rob Ryan:

{click to enlarge and read}

When I see you from across a crowded room my heart skips a beat when I
get nearer to the place where I think you might be my heart starts to
thump – will you be there? Will you be there? Will you be there? And
then as if by a miracle, the clouds part and the sun pours out from
behind a curtain of grey and suddenly you are there… my throat goes
dry, my legs turn to jelly and even now as I write this my hands begin
to tremble at merely the memory. I think you have a nice smile. I think
you look kind. I don't want to be alone with my thoughts. Would you?
Could you? Be my Valentine?
