  1. These are awesome covers! I'm posting mine later on this month, and The Kid Table is one of 'em!

  2. I like Toads and Diamonds -- it's an example of a trend I thought I saw this year: book cover with intricate patterns (like henna painting), swirls and arabesques and such. Luxurious excess. Hey, that cover girl--send us the link when you post your faves.
