One of those year-end lists is out. I’d not heard of this one before. Clearly the title is meant to grab your attention – and it did mine.
BuzzFeed has 32 – I won’t even hazard a guess as to why that odd number is chosen – of the “most beautiful book covers of 2016”:
Do judge these books by their covers?
Indeed, how about understated? Or thought-provoking? Or ambiguous? Or being coy (about the book’s contents)? Or (semi)clever(ish)? Or a Rorschach test?
Those are thoughts that popped into my mind while scrolling down.
We have all heard the expression “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” But still. Those 32 covers?
If the word “beautiful” had not been forced into my consciousness by the BuzzFeed title, I do not believe I would have looked at ANY of those covers and independently thought, “Wow, this is beautiful book cover.”
Just my humble opinion.
In any event, may your day be “beautiful,” wherever you are in our world. 🙂
