Cover Love (5)

This week's pick is...

The Girl who Fell from the Sky by Heidi Durrow! 

This pick is different from previous ones because of its simplicity. However, I've always found simple covers can have the greatest impact on you, with their elegance and surprisingly complexity. Because seriously, I adore this cover.

Let's start with the color scheme. It's comprised mainly of turquoises, teals, and green-blues, with some white that works very well. It manages to be easy on the eyes while attention-grabbing. The subtle texture of the background and the way the colors fade to dark at the edges are excellent touches.

The most notable part of this cover is the title positioning. Seven short words spaced out like that give the impression that they themselves are falling, or perhaps are the trail of the falling girl. It seems like such a simple idea, but it's really ingenious!

Finally, I have to say that I adore the drawing of the girl. The way her arms, legs, and braids are seem to be a bit light-hearted while the darker colors suggest otherwise. This is probably one of my favorite covers! What do you guys think?
