who wore it better book covers
Books have so many options when they dress for their big debut, but sometimes, they end up wearing very similar styles. In the vein of all my favorite trashy Hollywood magazines...
who wore it better?
tiny pretty things VS promise of shadows
I love both of these covers so much, but I think Promise of Shadows wins in the pretty-text-on-black category. The non-linear text with varied letter sizing is more interesting than the more consistent lettering in Tiny Pretty Things. The bigness helps too. It takes up more space, has more presence. Even the choice of the heavier font draws the eye more readily--because it's odd, so the eye catches on it, whereas the eye skips over the "normal" text in TPT. Also, personally, I like the softness of the feathers aesthetically. I think it fills up the background in a way that the glass in TPT doesn't. Maybe a more textured background would set off the pink text better.
the winner: promise of shadows
