Favorite Book Covers: Zoo City vs Zorro


As authors, we spend a lot of time pondering book covers. Admiring other authors' covers, dreaming about our own covers, designing our own covers ... So we thought it would be fun to spend the month of April and the A to Z Blogging Challenge looking at book covers and choosing our favorites.

Congratulations! You've made it to the end of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

On the left, we have Zoo City. You have to zoom in on this book cover to really appreciate the detail. It is AMAZING! In fact, graphic artist Joey Hi-Fi won “Best Art” in 2011 at the British Science Fiction Association's annual awards for this book cover.
On the right, we have Zorro. A far simpler cover with a splash of color against a black silhouette most of us recognize. 
So what will it be? Detailed art, or striking simplicity?



Which is your favorite book cover and why?

Zoo looks interesting, but I love colour, so I'm going with Zorro...and congrats on getting to the end of A to Z.

I like the one on the left - for me, it is the simpler design from afar, and I like the white space all round. Very classy and yet intriguing when you get close up. Fabulous. The other is more run-of-the-mill.

Congrats on getting to the end! I love book designs, wish i'd got here sooner!
