Last weeks Cover Wars came to an end with Winterspell's close victory over Witch Fall. This week the winner is facing the gorgeous cover of Suspicion by Alexandra Monir.
For the past few Cover Wars we've been randomly running into some similar themes. This week it's colour. Both covers have gravitated towards a similar shade of purple. It's a beautiful colour and both covers make it work.
Suspicion has a very delicate look to it. The flowers twist a certain way and the lilac maze makes me want to adore it from afar to insure it stay in it's current state of perfection. I wish, however that we could see the model instead of having an aerial view of her walking. I'm not sure if she is supposed to be a ghost or if the effect on her legs are supposed to depict movement. Either way, Suspicion's cover is a treat for the eyes of book lover everywhere.
The delicate theme is carried over to Winterspell, with the gorgeous swirling typography and the gates in the background. The models bright red hair and the crow's black feathers also serve as contrast with the lilac, wintery theme.
So, which'll it be? Let the Cover Wars begin!
