Cover Wonderment: Selling Hope



This weekend at the Kentucky Book Fair, I came across this gorgeous cover. Even Mr. Whimsy agreed it was the loveliest cover of the event. I love that it is both dreamy and old-fashioned. It makes want to spend an evening watching the stars. I can not seem to take my eyes off of it.

What do you think of Selling Hope by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb?

  18. Thank you all for the outpouring of cover-love! I adore it, too! It was designed by Rich Deas, the art director at Fiewel & Friends. He's amazing, isn't he? I think he really captured the essence of the story, too. Thanks again for all the nice comments!
