Cover Crazy: Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)    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've chosen this cover because I love the simple graphics of the branching lines that highlight the contrast of color. The structure at the bottom has a little more complexity, but not much. The most intricate thing on the page is the title font itself.
I appreciate that this title could have easily led to cheesy graphics of shadows and bones, and the artist chose not to go there. As it is here, it hints at an interesting story inside that cover, which is exactly what a cover should be created to do.
