Top Ten Book Covers I'd Frame As Pieces of Art


I love pretty books. I could stare at them forever.

Today I'm linking up to The Broke and the Bookish's meme to show off a couple of my favorite book covers...I want all of these hanging on my wall.

The Goose Girl 
by Shannon Hale

It's a work of art. The colors, the crackly-ness, the everything.

  by Marissa Meyer

Look at the font. Look at the cyborg leg. Look at the shiny red heel. It's simple but super cool.


The King of Attolia
 by Megan Whalen Turner

I love the detail in this, and I love the colors. It's probably my favorite cover in the series (and they're all gorgeous).

The Adventures of Robin Hood 
by Roger Lancelyn Green

All of the cloth-bound Puffin Classics are to die for. This one is my favorite. Ohmygoshsopretty.

The Magician's Elephant  
by Kate Dicamillo

I think it's the font on this one that gets to me. It's like a vintage circus poster. The floating elephant makes everything better.

The Little Prince
 by Antoine De Saint-Exupery

This one's just so cute. If I were to frame it, though, I'd want that yellow sticker gone.

The Book Thief  
by Markus Zusak

Because I had to.

The Thief Lord 
by Cornelia Funke

The color, the font, the gorgeous illustration. Woah.

The Mysterious Benedict Society 
by Trenton Lee Stewart

This one is so detailed and so quirky. Love, love, love.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe 
by C. S. Lewis

I love this vintage version of LWW. Narnia needs to be represented on my wall, and I think this is the perfect cover to do that.

And that's all of them! What do you think of these choices? I'd also love to hear what your favorite book covers are!



  1. I love the old Books of Bayern covers! I have The Goose Girl in that cover, but for the rest of the series I finally ended up getting the new covers because they were cheaper...but they are so ugly. Ha. Robin Hood is my favorite of the Puffin clothbounds, too! I also love the illustrations in the Mysterious Benedict society. And I really, really want to own a set of those vintage reproduction Narnia covers someday.

    1. Yeah, I have all of the new, not-as-pretty Books of Bayern versions myself. I always envy the prettier covers whenever I see them! :) That's awesome you have The Goose Girl in that version!

  2. I love the cover for Annabeth's War by Jessica Greyson, Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery, Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale -have you read that one?-, and A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers. I like all of your choices though. :)

    1. Oh, I like all of those too! Yes, I love The Book of a Thousand Days - Shannon Hale is one of my favorites :)

  3. Some favourites here :)
