Top Ten Book Covers I Would Frame As Art

I love this theme. Like so, so much. Yay for art! The images I have selected are based purely on how pretty I think they are, not on if I have read them or even if I like them.

ha626141. Pretty much any cover art for Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino. The art is stunning, of course I want it on my wall.

 

 

 

2. Of course Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll. I did however find a cover that isn’t an official release for this too which I really wish was real. So I will show that too, its the one on the right.

  1. Ooh I love the cover of The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavendar; it’s gorgeous. I haven’t read the book, but I have to! And I want to see the gold dragon on The Hobbit cover up close, it seems amazing. Great picks. :)

  2. Guh, I ADORE the Eva Lavender cover!! It’s so gorgeous. I love that you included all those classic covers, too! They’ve come out with some really awesome ones lately.

  3. Love your picks, I did not even consider some of the newer redesigns of some classics I’ve read for my list, I just looked at my bookshelf and saw the covers I have. Alice in Wonderland and Lord of The Rings are some books I would definitely like framed, especially with the covers you have chosen, I just have the cheap old school covers, not as inspiring.

  4. I love your choices – it’s as though you’ve been round my bookshelves! I love your No.1 – what a beautiful and inspired choice. I was also going to put Alice – did you see the lovely clothbound cover in the Broke and Bookish choices – not seen that one before. I’m certainly not going to argue with anyone putting the LoTR or The Hobbit – I thought about it – but, I seem to use every opportunity to promote those two books so thought I’d have a week off :D

  5. That cover of The Hobbit is beautiful! The Alice in Wonderland covers would look amazing framed too. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. The Ring & The Crown is so beautiful! And I love all the Tolkien covers too. Great list — they’re all so pretty to look at!

  7. Ahhh, so pretty! I especially love that B&N edition of the Alice stories (it made my list too), Those editions of the LotR books along with The Hobbit are truly stunning!
