Book Blogger Hop (November 26-29, 2010)



Book Blogger Hop time again!  

This meme is hosted by Crazy For Books.  Please check out her blog for complete rules.

Although I am still recovering from Thanksgiving, when I saw this week's question, I knew I had to participate.  

This week's question is:  "What is your favorite book cover?"

Answer:  I have so many, but the first ones that came to mind are some of the covers that grace Patricia McKillip's books.  (I couldn't find an official website, but click HERE for a fansite.)  McKillip writes Fantasy and she is one of my favorite authors.  Her writing is exquisite and surreal.  Kinuko Craft is the artist who has a brought several of her titles to life.  Kinuko's artwork brings me into another realm just as McKillip's writing does.  It is a perfect pairing.  Would you be able to pass up these books once you held them in your hand?  The images here don't really do Kinuko's talent justice.  Check out her website for more!
