I struggled hard with this topic. I don’t know if it’s just me – maybe I don’t read the right kind of books – or if publishers just don’t take advantage of autumn-themed palettes, but I couldn’t find many books at all with fall covers. Horror covers, yes. Halloween or scary or covers, yes. But just fall? Coffee and scarves and changing leaves and all that? Rare, at least in terms of books I know. I wanted to feature all autumn-themed book covers for this topic, but eventually I broke down and compromised. I’ve chosen to pull up my favorites of autumn-themed covers, scary/horror/spooky/Halloween-themed covers, and even some covers that only remind me of fall because of the internal contents. In no particular order, here are a dozen favorites:
So am I crazy? Why am I not seeing autumn-themed book covers out there? Am I looking in the wrong places? It seems that if they aren’t out there, there’s a great avenue for marketing. Many people love autumn themes!
