I liked the look and feel of the First Law series covers.

I want to revive this thread too, but at the moment can't find any new cover to share here...

Some covers I've loved recently!



Bold! Badass! Gives great flavour for the worldbuilding!



Again, great worldbuilding flavour. Just shouts: "I am going to be an intricate urban political fantasy, maybe even a little gaslamp-fantasy-ish!" but that billowy figure, hurrying about her business, gives it a feminine slant rather than a leather-clad-rogue slant. I'm into it.



This is so solidly "Asian historical adventure fantasy"; it references so many things, it's a masterclass in visual shorthand.
