T.G.I.F. (1)

Thank Great Illustrators Fridays is a book meme created and hosted by Owl Read It.

They say don't judge a book by it's cover, but a lot of the time the cover is what draws you to the book in the first place.  This meme is to show appreciation to the artists who put their time and effort into creating the great book covers of our beloved series.

To Participate:
  • Pick a book cover you love (any book will do - released or not)
  • Post the picture of the book along with the author, publisher AND the illustrator of the cover (if you can find it, if not, that's okay too!)
  • Post a brief summary of why you like the cover.  
  • Take the pic above and link back to us :)

This Week's T.G.I.F. Cover:

Published:  January 1, 2011 by Sterling
Jacket Illustrator: Cliff Neilson
Jacket/Case Art Direction Designer - Katrina Damkochler
Production - Fred Pagan

My thoughts: I love all of the covers in the Tiger's Curse series.  They are all beautiful.  If not for the cover, I may not have even read this wonderful series to begin with and it would have been completely my loss.  I love this cover because, well, look at it.  It is beautiful.
In case you are following this series, the cover reveal for the fourth book was also released this week!

What are your favourite book covers? Leave us a link to your own T.G.I.F! :)
