♥ Top Ten Covers
I Wish I Could Redesign I Hope are Never Redesigned ♥
I'm not a designer. I'm a reader. A librarian. A wife. A mom, first and foremost. Although there are a lot of covers out there I don't like for various reasons (I really dislike covers that use models... eyes, partial faces don't bother me if done "right" (I use quotations because, really, right is different for everyone...), but shoulders up, full bodies... I really feel those are going to be outdated so quickly... it bothers me... and I hate that it "tells" me what the characters should look like), there are many covers that are done, imo, right. They have the capability of being timeless, of never *needing* changed to keep with the times. They are beautiful, eye catching, or meaningful. That being said, here are some... :)
Okay. Now I know a lot of people like the newer cover, with 'the boys' on the cover. I, personally, love this one. It's timeless... it's simple... it's perfect.
I love-love-love these covers. Beautiful. I know I said I don't really like the 'people' covers, but this one (well, the series, really) is exquisite.
I absolutely love this cover. The actual cover on the hardcover is... bleh. No, thank you. This one, however... it's awesome.
This one is perfect in its simplicity, its meaningfulness. Beautifully done. Much better than the other covers it has.
Despite this not being the cover of the one I own, I love, love, love this one.
As you can imagine, I really dislike remaking the covers to go along with the movie. I get the reasoning, I just don't like them. I do, however, love the original covers of the Hunger Games series. They're simple, telling. Black the beginning - it's bleak, it's dark. Red for the beginning of the fight - the fire has been started, the war has begun. Blue for the ending - the light will come back. ♥
These covers are gorgeous... and amazingly done.
Simple, beautiful. I love the silhouette of the horse with the rider.
I love, again, the simplicity of this one. And it helps that it's an amazing story and doesn't need a cover to sell it. But they didn't know that at the time. :)
Seriously? Look at it. How is that not an amazingly intriguing cover? That's right. You can't come up with a reason, can you? (Please don't tell me if you can... I don't want to hear it... lol).
So there you have it. My ten covers I absolutely think should never be (or, in some cases, should've never BEEN) redone.
What about you? What covers would you redesign? Or what ones do you think should've never been touched/be touched?
