Another blue cover (see Book cover 2). Now, I mentioned before that blue is a masculine colour. Here that manifests itself in strength: this covers shouts at you. However, to temper this strength are the smooth curves of the font and roundness of the halo and the heart-shape cloud.
Blue is also a colour of calm and tranquility but this cover does not fall into this trap fully because of the pair of legs in jeans and high-heels at the top. They say two things to the book browser: fun and the female experience.
This clearly communicates that it’s a comedy and it’s for young (at heart) women. The clever three-way juxtaposition of;
- calm, strong, permanent blue sky,
- soft, ephemeral cloud,
- and kick-ass, slim-legged chick in heels,
provide the conflict that makes this cover shout “buy me”.
