Cover Characteristics: Footprints

Cover Characteristics2

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. Sugar 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!

Footprints

I struggled with this one! I thought for sure I would find so many great choices for today, but I just kept coming across great beach covers. Hmph.

Wolves

Like elephants, I have always revered wolves. I don’t know why, exactly. One of my older cousin’s (whom I was close to growing up) favorite animal is a wolf, but we also had a family dog named Wolf. I was convinced he was part wolf, but I don’t really know. I’ll keep the dream alive, though. He was a terrific dog.

Pens/Pencils

One of the things my students never have. My partner has literally gone through a thousand pencils this school year.

Have we done this one before? I don’t remember, but I feel like we have. Balloons are so whimsical and fun!

Perfume

I grew up seeing my mother and my grandmother’s perfume bottles. My grandmother wore White Diamonds and Charlie, and my mother wore Charlie…ironic, given my name, no? When I was in college, I found perfume by my mother’s name – and spelled correctly, which is not very easy. I was astounded by my find, and of course had to buy it. My mother cried when I gave it to her. Some of my favorite memories are watching my mother and grandmother pull out their bottle of perfume for a special occasion and spritzing it on. I will never forget those smells.

Person Sitting in a Field

This was a harder task than I thought it would be. I found very few covers with a person actually sitting in a field. I found more covers or a person standing in front of a field, but that’s neither here nor there…but they are here! Unfortunately, this characteristic lends itself to Christian romance and Amish genres. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I went looking specifically for those two genres.

New York City

This one was a little tougher than I originally thought. There are a lot of books set in New York, but not necessarily showcased on the cover. Death of a Salesman is a favorite of mine.

UFOs

Sci-fi is not my forte, so I could be completely wrong in what is considered a UFO, but I couldn’t find that many covers that featured UFOs. Most of them had something about UFOs in the title but didn’t have them on the cover, or had little alien-like creatures on the cover.

I didn’t do so great with this one, but it gave me some other cover ideas!

Elephants

Elephants have always been an animal I have loved seeing in photos, on video, in movies. I attribute this to the elephant herd in the Disney animated version of The Jungle Book and the number of times I watched it.

 

But my favorite elephant book of all is…
