Artsy Shelf – 31 – Intense Red
You all know how I love pretty dresses on cover! And I have mentioned at least once before with the Artsy Shelf feature how much I love red dresses. Well it seems it’s a passion shared by the YA world, as many of the recent covers feature stunning dresses in dramatic settings and colors.
I have always felt the color evokes passion and intensity, and these covers do a great job of showcasing red as a strong, intense, dramatic color. Contrasted with grays, white or dark tones, put in movement by the swirls of a dress, it stands out beautifully. Everneath is my favorite, I think, though The Girl in the Steel Corset is also striking. I also love Juliet Immortal’s cover, with its beautiful sea landscape.
Do these covers evoke as much passion for you, or do they miss the mark? Which one is your favorite?
