Cover Crazy: Alice in Zombieland
The purpose of Cover Crazy is to feature a cover each week for us to admire its beauty. I really like this idea since there are so many great covers out there! Cover Crazy is a meme that was started by The Book Worms.
I love contrast on book covers, and this one has plenty of contrast. The black and white is the most obvious. The hard, sharp lines of the frame, even though they are intricate, contrast with the fluffy, soft skirt of Alice's dress. The symbols of the four suits of cards are in the outline, yet only Alice graces the cover; though they are invisible, the cards still have her surrounded. They beautiful girl looks as if she's resting comfortably, yet she is wearing a solemn, wary expression. At last, we notice the big statement in a small font: "Off with their heads." This is a cover that is begging to have a reader peek inside.
