I’m back from my recent bookcation, which I’ll talk more about soon, and I still have books on the brain (wait, don’t I always?) I bought a lot of books last week, and was tempted by many more, especially the vintage ones.
I’ve said before (and it won’t be the last time) that I love older sci-fi and fantasy covers. There’s just something magical about the fantastic scenes and powerful men and women, or the freaky, unexplainable images.
Maybe vintage cover art are like vintage cars-there’s just something that can’t be replicated today. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy modern covers, because I do. I just think that vintage books have a certain appeal and I always find myself pulled to them when at used bookstores.
Do you have a preference on cover style? What elements of cover art pull you in?
