Cover envy. I have it. I love browsing through books online or in bookstores and looking at covers. It’s fun to think about which covers work and why. But I realized recently that I rarely look at covers by imprint or by publishing house. So, I’ve spent a few days going through the covers at different imprints to see if I noticed any trends or if any house’s covers particularly stood out to me. I only looked at YA imprints so keep that in mind. In fact, I started thinking about this in the first place when I notice how amazingly awesome all Flux’s covers are. So big round of applause for Flux on the cover front! Anyway, these are the imprints that I think are creating particularly standout covers for teens. Lucky authors and lucky readers who get to have these fab novels gracing their bookshelves.
How about y’all? Are their any houses whose covers you consistently love?
