Cover Crush: The North Water by Ian McGuire

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 shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those prints that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

I do a double take every time I see Ian McGuire's The North Water. I've not read the book, but I adore the imagery on the jacket. I find the silhouette with the ocean and the night within it striking. There's a lot of drama in the inverted space and I think the angle of the whale emphasizes it all the more.
