This emerald green does all the work.
This cover evokes the beach for me. And the huge font works well with the muted colors.
Lipstick isn't particularly original, I suppose, but that fantastic color and the way the image pops off the black background make ordinary lipstick something else.
So simple and yet gorgeous. I think it's a matter of scale, and how the blooms speak for themselves, taking up the whole cover.
Again, black makes the images pop. The crisp, modern feel appeals to me. I suspect the story inside has a brisk pace and a modern feel.
Check out these essential May 2017 releases.
