Cover Crush: The Salt Road by Jane Johnson

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 think the cover of Jane Johnson's The Salt Road incredibly striking. Contrasting colors always catch my eye, but I find the pairing of orange and blue especially effective in this design. I appreciate how the artistic distortion of both the model and the camels below her bring depth and texture to the jacket and I like how the corner embellishments subtly frame the two as a single image.
