This week’s theme is: “Warm September brings the fruit” – a cover that is seasonal for Autumn/Fall
I decided to go with one that may only be glancingly fall–but the heroine is named September, this series always came out in the fall so I read it then, and the reds and golds do have an autumnal feel. So my pick for today is The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. A relatively recent book, there seem to be only a few cover options.
This is close to the cover I’ve seen before, but with some extra swirly bits. It’s a bit too much, although putting Neil Gaiman’s endorsement at the top is a nice touch!
I like the font on this one, and I mostly like the coloring…except that I feel like September is somehow less visible. Not the right contrast, perhaps?
This seems to be the primary cover, and someone is making a good choice because it remains my favorite. It’s the right level of elegant–and there’s even a longer Neil Gaiman endorsement at the bottom! 🙂
What books make you think of September and fall?
