What can I say, I’m a sucker for covers with symbols. Especially well-crafted, beautifully illustrated ones. I’ve never read any of the oodles of Sweep novels, but if I ever decided to start reading them, I could blame these covers.
My favorite is the second volume, mostly because I’m permanently biased to non-spectral colors between violet and red. I’ve been this way since I was eight. But honestly, I really can’t help but stare at these beautiful covers. I love the font choices, the serif title, the taglines, the careful balance of color within each cover and across the series of bind-ups. Stunningly simple, but rich with texture and detail in each of the symbols that adorn each cover. They all seem gracefully and carefully designed, almost as if created by a flourish of hand.
Thanks to Pam for the heads up.
