A few weeks ago, at back-to-school night, I browsed the Scholastic book fair and this cover caught my eye:
(Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated: January 2011)
I love that the words are part of the artistic design. Then last week, I was excited to see that Deirdre had also found some similar covers, using signs for her post, See the Signs. I thought I would continue with this subject, but it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
I started hunting for similar covers that incorporated the title into the art. I found a few at the book fair, and none at the library. Even my online bookstore search didn’t produce many results. I was surprised to find this device is not used as much as I thought it would be.
Here’s what I found:
Troy High (Abrams, Harry N., Inc.: August 2010)
And coming soon,
So here’s a JACKET KNACK challenge: How many other clever covers can you find?
What qualifies: any covers that mix the words of the title into the art, as an artistic element. (Covers that were posted on Jacket Knack last week or this week do not qualify.) Post a link to a cover in a comment to enter. At the end of October, I’ll do a drawing from the entrants and send the lucky winner a copy of Debby Dahl Edwardson’s new YA novel, My Name Is Not Easy. Good luck!
