The 13 Best Book Covers of April
A Bouquet of Bright Books for Spring
Another month of books, another month of book covers. Here are my favorites from the season so far:
Pure joy. And a very good representation of “caterpillar dogs,” to be fair. How can you not love it?
Bright, bold, and energetic, this cover makes the book look like a very yummy snack, and you know what, that’s exactly what it is.
The perfect marriage of title, concept, and execution.
I love the way the image suggests a larger pattern while also giving us the active movement of the figure. Plus, the color! It’s giving me life.
How can Oliver Munday do so much with two dots and a scribble?
A master class in overlapping—and in restraint (I love that the text and the moon are the same hue). Terrifically spooky.
A great use of this hand-cut lettering effect.
The combination of image selection and text treatment draws you in here.
A very groovy use of archival imagery.
Gasp—is that SunPrint?? Oh, the nostalgia! (It’s also pretty lovely even if you didn’t spend your childhood summers leaving leaves out on paper.)
Honestly, you had me at the fire font.
This cabbage pleased me so much—and then I noticed the shadow.
It’s weird and jarring and aggressive, and pretty unlike most other book covers I’ve seen lately. All good things in my book.
