The Cover Up

I ran across a great online article about the 25 world's worst book covers. I was so amused by the article that I thought I'd share a couple of my favorites.

First, a book cover that asks, "Is that your hand in my pocket, or are you just happy to...wait, that IS your hand in my pocket."
And then my next favorite. By the picture, I'm stuck wondering if this book is a science fiction adventure, or a book about good bra support. I'm still not sure...
Now I know authors have no control over the covers, but didn't anyone notice the obvious issues on these?

When I publish (not if, when. That's positive thinking folks) I hope my cover is at least tolerable. If it comes out with two poorly positioned globes, or an overly happy woman, I might need a night of all you can eat sushi to ease my pain.


  1. I wholeheartedly agree. Especially about the globe thing. :)

  2. That is SO awesome! I can't believe that those were put out there for the general public. What are some people thinking.

    I really think it would take more than just one night of sushi...

  3. Well, the Silouhette one IS labeled Intimate Moments. They ain't kiddin'!

  4. Horribly hilarious covers. Thanks Deb.
