Gorgeous, full of whimsy, limited color scheme, and delightful font. I’m not sure about all the little ribbon details, but it does add to the whimsical nature. Is the ‘a novel’ part necessary? I wouldn’t think it to be a non-fiction book, but then again, that’s me. Also, I could have done with fewer words on the cover. Sure, keep National Bestseller and the prizes – but why add the Washington Post quote? I’d put that on the back.
