Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
The topic for this week is: Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame as Pieces of Art
There are a lot of gorgeous book covers out there. Many of the books on my shelves I’m delighted to own because not only are they great to read but they make the room like that much more special.
Here are ten covers which I think would look great framed on my walls
F. Scott Fitzgerald series designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith
This particular version of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I love the quotes and other things embossed on the cover. Great as wall art but also I like the texture. (picture found at Little Bird’s Nest on tumblr)
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad (also designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith)
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
Not a long list today but one that took me forever to come up with. I really like a lot of classic novels with different covers. I’m even tempted to buy different editions just because I adore their covers.
Which books do you adore the covers of? Any worthy of being art pieces on your walls?
That Fitzgerald series is so classy. It screams I’m a fancy adult. I like fancy adult things lol.
I was actually thinking of putting Ava Lavender on my list – didn’t end up doing it, but I LOVE that cover! I’m a big fan of minimalistic covers 🙂
that Pride and Prejudice hardcover is so beautiful 😀 I’d like to have classic books with that style of cover.
The covers for the F. Scott Fitzgerald series are beautiful! I also love that cover for Pride And Prejudice 🙂 Great picks! New follower 🙂
Oh my! Beautiful. Thank you.
I love those covers, they look so pretty next to each other. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows… is on my list too.
Wow the Fitzgerald re-designs are GORGEOUS.
I all of a sudden feel the need to expand my Fitzgerald collection! Those covers are amazing. Great picks!
I bought the strange and beautiful sorrows of ava lavender based just on the cover a few weeks ago. It really is gorgeous. Great list!
Oh wow. You have got some beautiful covers listed this week. I love the gold/silver covers.
Wow, that F. Scott Fitzgerald collection is gorgeous! So is the Pride & Prejudice, I’ve never seen that version before but I love it.
That cover of Dreams of Gods and Monsters is amazing. Also, gorgeous Fitzgerald set.
The UK version of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series is just GORGEOUS! I feel pretty special to have them on my shelves. And the Fitzgerald shelf… that’s just one I’m envious over. I want to own it!
I haven’t seen that edition of Pride and Prejudice, it is beautiful!
