Shelf Candy Saturday (14)



Shelf Candy Saturday is a meme that celebrates the many times unrecognized, but invaluable hard work of book cover designers. They say never judge a book by its cover, but you know you do!!

So now, run on over to Five Alarm Book Reviews (the creators of this fun meme) and check out more awesome covers!




I just received an ARC of Starters via Netgalley and was so drawn in by the cover that I decided to feature it on this week's SCS,




I love her eyes, the circuitry and the washed out look of the cover!

The face artwork is the creation of Bob Lea and he has even more amazing work on his deviantART site, such as this:


Artemis Fowl Is Annoyed by Bob Lea
The circuitry artwork was created by Michael Wagner. I wanted to give you guys the scoop on this amazing artist, but I found several Michael Wagner's in the art community and didn't want to profile the wrong one. If anyone has the scoop, let me know and I'll be happy to edit my post.



That's it for this week. Be sure to head to Five Alarm Book Reviews (FABR for the cool kids :) ) and see what everyone else is featuring this week!

  1. I am so amazed when an artist can capture such realistic facial features. The work looks close to a photo. I was recently studying the cover for Starters and am thrilled that you chose it to share. I am off to Deviant Art.

  4. Interesting. I really want to know why one of her eyes is brown and the other, electric blue.
