Cover Trends: February Releases

FebBooks

(This is just a tiny sampling…)

Now a lot of people are buzzing over the new books coming up this month, but I’m busy looking at the covers.  I’m still seeing two trends here: An item rather than a person (on top) and fancy frames (on bottom).

I’m actually noting the plainer typography as well, some very basic–but readable–text in variants that look related to Trajan font.  (Cinzel is one of my all-time favorites!)

To see more about some of the upcoming books (and what’s inside tohose pretty covers), check out:
