You know me! I love colors, I love art, and I love beautiful book covers. So this new feature here on my blog features my favorite covers from every color of the spectrum. I’ll also feature a short explanation of the color’s meaning so we can discuss if the predominate use of that color was a good choice.

 

Oh, lovely lovely yellow. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of winter. And I mean TIRED. This winter has been more brutal that this state has had in about 60 years, and I am counting the degrees until spring! So how about I showcase some lovely sunshiney yellow colors to get away from this wintery slump?

Pure, bright and sunnyyellow is the easiest color to see. People who are blind to other colors can usually see yellow. Yellow is full of creative and intellectual energy. Always use yellow note pads. It symbolizes wisdom, and means joy and happiness.

 

So, what do you think? Does yellow work for these covers? Have you read any of these? What covers am I missing?

In honor of Halloween coming up, this time I chose to feature covers that are predominately orange. Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

So, what do you think? Does orange work for these covers? Have you read any of these? What orange covers am I missing?

This time, I’m featuring red covers. Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.

So, what do you think? If you’ve read these books, does the use of red on the cover reflect the subject matter of the story? What other red covers do you like?
