Cover Crush: Mademoiselle Chanel by C.W. Gortner

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 paperback edition of C.W. Gortner's Mademoiselle Chanel caused me to do a double take when it appeared in my newsfeed. I love the art deco feel of this jacket and truly appreciate the designer for incorporating Coco Chanel's timeless style into the design. I like the muted tones and how they lend an almost vintage feel to Gortner's work.
