Cover Crush: Cursed Once More by Amanda DeWees

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 fell in love with the cover of Amanda DeWees' Cursed Once More the moment it appeared in my Goodreads recommendations. Silhouettes always catch my eye, but I always do a double take when the designer inverts the traditionally dead space and to emphasize something else. The rich tones of the manor house, flower field, and sunset draw the eye, but I also love the detail and dimension of the subtle filigree and corner elements that frame the central image.

LOVE IT!!! Adding this one to my wish list, solely based on the cover (what? That isn't the best way to judge a book? ;)).

Pretty mosaic. I think the original is called the Mona Lisa of the Galilee.

I'm obsessed with pretty cover art, and while I KNOW it doesn't always mean a good read, I can't help myself. SO thanks for Cover Crush. :)
