Gorgeous Fall Covers

I'm a book lover, so I'm all about the words on the page, but I'm also an object lover, a collector (my husband might say hoarder, but he would be wrong, obviously). That's why I care so deeply about cover art. Some people think it doesn't matter, and some publishers clearly (or apparently) don't think it matters as much as it does. But it does! The cover of a book sets the tone for the whole damn thing. It's very often people's first impression of the book, and sometimes only impression. Cover art that is beautiful, interesting, unique, and well executed makes the book a piece of art, a possession to be possessed. Here are a few of my favorites from this fall.
