Okay, so you may have heard of Strange Chemistry which is an imprint of Angry Robot. They publish fantasy YA novels and their covers are works of art. Seriously. Let’s take a look.
I love the colours and the silhouette of the city and the ship. The night sky and the Arabic calligraphy style. The font is awesome and matches the calligraphy-ish detail at the bottom and top of the cover. I would want to read this book from the cover alone.
I really do not have much to say about this other than: just look at it. The gorgeousness that is the cover. The colours, the composition. Ace.
And now, the early cover art for an upcoming title:
How incredibly mysterious and ethereal? The mask and the finger at her lips ensures that there is a tense feeling of expectation and anticipation even before the cover is cracked open. The book is called Pantomime, I believe. Keep an eye out for it.
