TTT: Covers Freebie


Top Ten Tuesday is a Meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish  This week's Top Ten is a cover themed freebie, so anything to do with covers.  You may or may not know that covers are one of my favorite things about books, I could really just surround myself with the artwork of book covers on my walls.  For this week I've selected some covers by two of my favorite illustrators, Iacapo Bruno and Kazu Kibuishi (with links to their websites).  

1.  Kazu Kibuishi illustrated the covers for The box set of Harry Potter and is the author of the graphic novel Amulet.  I love how the spines form an image and  The Sorcerer's Stone is my favorite of his covers.

2.  Iacapo Bruno illustrated some of my favorite books.  The illustrations and sketches on his blog are so beautiful, especially the full book jacket covers.  This is only a small sample of some of his covers.  




I love this book jacket cover for Pierdomenico Baccalario's Suitcase of Stars (Enchanted Emporium)

I love the Bruno covers. The writing is as lovely as the drawings.

I didn't realize that the HP box set and the Amulet series were done by the same illustrator. Beautiful work! I do get pulled into books by their covers, even though I try not to! :)

Didn't know you loved covers so much. I can see that you tend toward a certain style from your choices, too.

I love how we both have Jinx, but for different colors.

I adore your list! MG books always have the best covers. All the pretty covers make me want to read the books...so I guess they're doing their job. :)

Brenda said...

Thanks Lori, I adore covers but also what's inside them is pretty awesome too.
