Cover Crush: A Separate Country by Robert Hicks

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!

The artist behind Robert Hicks' A Separate Country is a creative genius. Everything about this cover, from the the text fonts and muted tones to the layering of the design elements and subtle edge embellishments speak to the era in which the story takes place. Without reading the description, I've a good idea of where and when this story is set and am immediately intrigued by the image and the material it might conceal.
