I was looking at my bookshelf the other day and I realized how much book covers have changed. From my old favorites of Johanna Lindsey’s naked man with clothed woman to Sherrilyn Kenyon’s beautiful eyes in gorgeous man’s face. There were flowered covers, some with set-backs and some without. Some with just women on the cover while others with animals (mainly horses).
I never understood why publishers’ art departments would place naked or partially clothed women with clothed men on the covers, especially when they’re to appeal mostly to women.
Nowadays, many of the covers are beautiful works of art. LOL! At least in my eyes. Even if they don’t show their faces - I fill in those areas and others. I do have an imagination I like to use. Let me share.
Well, what covers do you like?
P.S. Oh, one of my favorites is actually a drawing. You can check it out at http://www.ellorascave.com/productpage.asp?ISBN=1-84360-718-2
