I originally did a post about book covers featuring skulls roughly six months ago when it was the official topic of the week, but I kept finding so many great covers with skulls that I wanted to do it again! And something about a skull on a book cover just seems to automatically make it more interesting ;-) So here are some more awesome and gorgeous book covers for you all to enjoy!
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. I went rogue this week, so my topic is:
Books Covers featuring Skulls
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Of course I adore the red, black, and white, but it’s also just really pretty and artsy.
Darkchylde: The Ariel Child Saga by R. Queen
This one is just gorgeous, and she looks like such an interesting character!
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
This one looks so elegant.
Canyons by Gary Paulsen
This one is simple but attention-grabbing.
Saint Death by Mike Duran
This one has some really fun art.
Mondragoran Chronicles by Barry James
I just love the art on both of these, the skulls in the glowy magic look really cool, and he also looks like an interesting character.
Girl Over Paris by Gwenda Bond
The walls made of skulls are a nice, detailed touch!
The Shotgun Arcana by R. S. Belcher
This character actually looks kind of terrifying, but it’s a really nice cover, and I love the font too.
Fairy Tale Reform School Series by Jen Calonita
These are so colorful and pretty and magical!
Brazen by Kelley Armstrong
Was there ever a chance I wasn’t going to choose this one as my favorite?! I LOVE the red, white and black, especially since all the colors are so stark and crisp and contrast so well. And it’s just a fantastic cover period with the wolf and the skulls and the blood! Update: It has been brought to my attention that there are two covers for this, so I’m including the human one too since they’re both awesome!
