Cover Crush: Shadows on the Nile by Kate Furnivall

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'm a big fan of covers that use contrasting colors to draw the eye and feel the graphic designer behind Kate Furnivall's Shadows on the Nile utilized the technique beautifully. The inherent opposition of the cool tones against the warmer ones is visually striking, but it also causes the reader to take a second look and examine the details of pyramids below. I've not read the book, but I'm already intrigued!
