Everyone once in a while, a book cover will call to mind another for me… and when that happens, I think of them as Cover Cousins.
Here’s how I framed the concept for my first Cover Cousins post:
I love when I pick up a new book and am instantly reminded of another — not necessarily because the covers are the same, but more because there’s a common feeling to them, a style, a color pattern, an image. The connection may only be in my mind, but it’s something I really enjoy thinking about.
Here’s my newest set of Cover Cousins:
These two are quite different, but between the title fonts and the overall layout, including the flowers and plants around the edges, seeing Vengeance Road immediately made me thing of The Darkest Part of the Forest.
What do you think? Do see a connection, or is it all in my mind?
