Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Love – All About the Words

Posted September 27, 2022 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, cozy mystery, historical, mystery/suspense, romance, Top Ten Tuesday / 27 Comments

Happy Tuesday, my friends! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is typographic book covers – covers where the design is all, or mostly, words. Or, to say it another way, the cover is all about the words. This was a more difficult topic to narrow down than I anticipated so I ended up picking mostly covers that – were the title to be removed – you would have little to no idea what the book was about. That doesn’t apply to all of the ones I chose, but it does for most of them. The words really do make the cover, in these cases below.

  1. I just found some GORGEOUS covers when I inadvertently snagged a cheap book on Bookbub – Debbie Macomber Classics from Penguin!! It was actually the cover that drew me in! lol!

  2. I looked though these and picked Colleen Coble’s as the one I liked best–then realized it’s the one with an actual picture in it! Ha! Guess I still like covers with pictures.
