Sunshine covers!

These three books are on my bedside table*; they make me happy. First and foremost, they happen to be fantastic reads that I highly recommend full of humor, heart and outstanding illustrations. I look at them and rearrange them often and even though I’ve finished them, I just don’t want to put them away. I think that has something to do with the yellow. I rarely use yellow in my work, it seems like a bold choice and an even bolder one for a cover.  But seeing these three side by side is a reminder that I should. I can’t get over how great they go together and most of all, how they make me feel just seeing them. I looked on my bookshelves and found only two other book covers that were yellow (both unremarkable books). Is this a trend in publishing and book design or is this just a happy circumstance?

Do you use yellow or have any noteworthy yellow covers? Tell me about them in the comments!

And make sure you check out their work:  Sara Varon, Allie Brosh, Marc Boutevant and the Ariol series written by Emmanuel Guibert.

  1. Love this! I’m a huge fan of yellow covers, and really pushed for one on the last book I did, but the AD wasn’t psyched about it. I hope your findings signal a trend, because yellow is fun and there really should be more of it in the world!
