I am admittedly shallow and choose books based on their covers. The artwork does so much to steer my expectations and grab my interest when selecting what book to obsess over.
One of my favorite designers is Erin Fitzsimmons. Don’t recognize her name? She’s behind some of your favorite Harper covers and text. I interviewed her a couple of years ago and you can read it here to get more insight into the designer process. Today I wanted to highlight some of my favorite covers she’s created.
Look at all of these incredibly beautiful covers. Coming soon we’ll be seeing her cover for Julie Eshbaugh’s debut Ivory and Bone. I can’t wait to see what she creates since this book is so off the typical YA beaten path (a historical with an icy landscape and I’m hoping for mammoths).
What’s your favorite cover Erin has created?
