Book Cover Trends
Here's a random post. I've noticed a trend lately in book covers that seems on the verge of becoming commonplace.
Remember when it seems like every book had the image of the back of a person walking away? Something like this. Especially prevalent in historical books, but then the style started showing up everywhere.
I think almost every Kate Quinn cover I've seen has the back side of a woman.
Know what I'm seeing LOTS of now? Covers like this: (found all these on my recent Pinterest TBR entries when I started noticing the trend). Click image to go to GR blurb.
The other thing I notice is that the majority of these profiles are women of color. Don't you find that interesting? What do you think the design process is for these covers?
Have you noticed any other particularly striking or unusual trends in cover design? What are you seeing? Do you like it or do you feel like designers are taking the easy way out and not really CREATING something new?
