Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Disability

I've been wanting to do this post for a while since I talk a lot about disability in books on my blog and have the list of sci-fi/fantasy books with disability and everything, but let me tell you, there are NOT a lot of book covers out there that show any sort of visible disability on them.

You may have seen my tweet about how that went. $75 for her to tell me to exercise, get out of the house more often, and get more fresh...

Bookish Musings: I Want More Books about… Disability & Medical Needs in Post-Apoc Worlds

I put the ellipses in the title because I'm going to make this a new kinda sporadic feature. Meaning I plan to do at least a few other posts about things I want more books about. I think it'll be fun :-) Anyway... In all my posts and conversations with everyone about disability in books, I have realized there is a subgenre that seriously needs to exist: people with disabilities and special...
