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!
This week, I'm going to go off of the rails a little bit, but I saw these beautiful movie posters and I couldn't resist sharing them with you!
Since they are both based on books (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and The Hobbit), I thought they might fit in with a Shelf Candy post. I'm thinking they will probably be the book covers for the movie tie-in editions, but I can't wait that long!
I love this poster! The lighting is amazing. The fog is creepy. I love that Lincoln is shrouded in mystery with his tilted hat, the axe, his fancy chair. Is that a skull in the moon? Brilliant!
The movie starring Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is scheduled to be released June 22nd. It is based on a novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, which is amazing BTW.
I couldn't find out info on the designers of this spine-tingling poster, but I'm obsessed with it now and I will get answers, friend. I will get answers...
Another amazing poster! Look at Bilbo go! The colors and lighting are magical and if I didn't want to live in the Shire already, I certainly would now. The details, lighting and colors are gorgeous.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is based on the amazing novel by J.R.R. Tolkien and serves as a prequel to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The much-anticipated movie stars Luke Evans, Hugo Weaving and Evangeline Lilly and is scheduled to be released December 14th. Just in time for the holidays!
The poster was designed by Eclipse Advertising, who are also the creative minds behind the posters for Tangled, Cars, Water for Elephants and many more. You should checkout their website to see more beautiful creations!
That's it for this week, guys! I promise to hit the books for next week's SC, but I just had to share these with you!
Be sure to head to Five Alarm Book Reviews (FABR for the cool kids :) ) and see what everyone else is featuring this week!
