Cover Crush: Fagin's Boy Series by Christina E. Pilz

We all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in today's increasingly competitive market, a memorable jacket can make or break sales.

I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and much as I loath admitting it, jacket design is one of the first things I notice when browsing the virtual shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those jackets that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

Cristina E. Pilz' Fagin's Boy series has stopped me in my tracks on more than one occasion. Forgive me for gushing, but I absolutely love the deep colors and antique feel of these designs. It's deceptively simple, but the layered components grant each installment unexpected dimension and depth. I also love the subtle detailing such as the detailing around the edges of title circle and the discrete border enhancement the climbs up the left hand side.

Happens to me on a regular basis too Colleen.

I call myself a 'cover slut' in several of my reviews. I figured 'crush' was a more appropriate term. ;)
