Choosing a book cover is not easy! It's a challenge to come up with an image that suits the content, and is attractive to readers. Some of these early covers for some well-known books by some heavyweight authors may have seemed like a great choice once upon a time. In my opinion, though, the following covers now seem very cheesy and dated.
|I just generally don't like to see faces |
on books unless it's a bio.
|The bright yellow background is not |
particularly visually soothing.
|Can you say "Bodice Ripper"?|
|This is so very Marilyn Monroe!|
|What horrible colours! |
The images are nothing special either.
