Cover Crush: The Dressmaker's War/The Dressmaker of Dachau by Mary Chamberlain

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 spend a lot of time looking at WWII fiction and while I've earmarked many title for my TBR, Mary Chamberlain's The Dressmaker's War/The Dressmaker of Dachau is unique. The book has multiple jackets, but these two catch my eye on a regular basis. I love how the silhouette was used to create blank space in middle of The Dressmaker's War, but I also like the contrast created by artist who paired the feminine sewing machine against the masculine barbed wire on The Dressmaker of Dachau.
