Cover Crush: Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

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!

Rosamund Hodge's Crimson Bound falls outside my usual genres, but the cover stopped me dead in my tracks. The juxtaposition of the trees, the stone and the tile is striking as is the geometry of the staircase. I like how the shock of red in the figure's cape plays against the varied greens of the trees and I think the final design both interesting and unique.
