We’ve all been told not to judge a book by it’s cover, but what if the cover is completely amazing? I know that saying isn’t really supposed to be about books, but when you love books almost as much as color, it really does apply. My favorite bookstore happens to be the Goodwill, and I’ll admit I cruise for covers that appeal to me.
Recently I bought a book with a cover that made my mouth water on sight. The colors and patterns created a collage of texture that I could not walk away from. The book is The Tale of Murasaki by Liza Dalby. The story actually looks intriguing and I think I’ll love reading it, but it is the cover design by Fritz Metsch that insisted I bring this book home with me.
Thinking "Out Loud"
I think about being creative. A lot. I think about color and texture almost as often. My goal with this blog is to think "out loud" about these things that bring me such delight.
