Weekly Photo Challenge: Art of Covers


I know you aren’t meant to judge a book by it’s cover, but we do, of course we do.  If I see a book with a plain black cover, stern white font and one item lit up with one colour tone then I’m going to avoid it because it’s either 50 Shades of Grey or one of it’s many knock-offs.  I’m never going to read any of them.  If it’s all ink with slightly curled font in a pastel tone, perhaps with cupcakes or stars around it, then that’s probably not a book for me either.

I love collections of anything grouped together as a subject for a picture, but particularly book or album covers.  I like the differences and similarities in the layout, font, colour choices, images, sizing and all that sort of thing.  And so I take pictures of these groupings and some of these can be seen below:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art


The brief for this weekly photo challenge is to think about an image that could be used as a cover for something – a magazine, an album, a book perhaps.

I’d like to make an album at some point.  I know what the cover is going to be like, I’ve got it in my head, but I don’t want to reveal that yet.  I’ve started writing a book and I’ve got an idea of what the cover of that might be, even if I’ve got no title and no definite conclusion to the story.  So I’m not going to reveal that yet.

At some stage I’m going to put together my photo journal of Felt Sherlock‘s travels and I think this should be the cover:IMG_8072
