This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. She kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!
Each week I (along with the S&S ladies) will post a characteristic and choose 5 of my favorite covers with that characteristic. I would love for you to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic so hop on down to the comments and tell me what you think.
Today’s Cover Characteristic – Birdcages
And The Winner Is…
Birdsong by Sabastian Faulks
Ok, so I have to admit…this one was a little tough for me because I LOVE (to obsession) two of this week’s covers. (No, I won’t tell you who came in second, you will just have to guess.) But in the end Birdsong took home the win. Why? Because I am a total junkie for deco street art and this my friends is a BEAUTIFUL example of the art I will pull my car over (in heavy traffic) for just to snap a picture of (so I can stare at it later and contemplate the intentions behind it.) And before you give me grief about this being a grenade and NOT a birdcage I ask you to take a second look. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Is that a BIRD trapped INSIDE of the grenade? Yes…yes it is. And that my friends is what you call a “Caged Bird.” I rest my case.
How about you….have any birdcage book covers you’d like to share?
