#ReadSouLit Photo Challenge – Day 9

Day 9 – Beautiful Edition:  

Well if you have followed you know how important today’s theme is to me.  Beautiful Edition!  Now I IMG_1389had a few ideas for this one but I decided to choose one of the books that I’m reading at the moment and that’s Jacinda Townsend’s Saint Monkey.  Couldn’t resist, it’s so beautiful.  It’s colorful, vibrant, attractive and the artwork is sensitive to the book’s subject.  I don’t know the name of the artist who painted the picture on the cover (wish I did), but the designer of the cover is Jaya Miceli, who has designed plenty of other beautiful covers.  I’m enjoying this novel so far and will be back with an in-depth review.  I’m currently on p. 50.  Name your beautiful edition(s).

  1. I loved Saint Monkey – thought it should have gotten more recognition. Ironically, I think the title and the cover (even though I think it’s beautiful too) might have affected sales.

    For this day I went with: The Golden/50th Anniversary edition of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee – hauntingly beautiful, imo. I loved the color scheme of gold (to commemorate the 50th/golden anniversary – and especially making the mockingbird in gold at the top right corner on the highest branch of the tree). The depiction of young Scout at the base of the tree looking up at the bird in wonder against a bright full Autumn moon. I imagine the back cover is Jem tending his broken arm, his back against the tree facing away in a dejected pose in darkness – representing his disappointment in the justice system. http://www.amazon.com/Kill-Mockingbird-Harper-Lee/dp/0446310786/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423586327&sr=1-1&keywords=to+kill+a+mockingbird+50th+anniversary+edition
