Cover Crush: The Library of Shadows by Mikkel Birkegaard

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!

Perspective isn't something I've mentioned much in this series, but that's because it's harder to find jackets that utilize it creatively! The designer behind Mikkel Birkegaard's The Library of Shadows understood the technique and I love how positioning the POV low to the ground draws me into the image while creating intrigue.
