Cover Crush: Mr. Emerson's Wife by Amy Belding Brown

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!

Despite the fact that the unfortunate model has lost half her head, I have to admit that I am quite enamored with the jacket design for Amy Belding Brown's Mr. Emerson's Wife. There is a lot going on either the embellishments and layered imagery, but the richness of it all taunts my imagination.

I have those same feelings. Why is it almost shameful to say a book cover can influence whether you will pick a book to read.
