Book Covers

As part of my participation in the bookstagram community on Instagram, I often take pictures of book covers. I take these pictures outside sometimes so that the background to the book may look a little interesting.

I take these photos no matter what the weather:

Sometimes I take them at home and surround them with silk flowers:

Or I place the book next to my potted plants and pair it with a snack,

a candle,

or even a drink.

Sometimes I photograph the book with only the potted plant accompanying it, showing off its green leaves

and sometimes its flowers.

From time to time, I pair a book cover with some of my students’ work:

Recently I have taken to listening to audiobooks during the social isolation period and have even shared these tops with the community.

I enjoy opening the covers of the books I read and often try to think of ways in which I can show off the work created by the artists who designed them.

Do you enjoy looking at book covers?

  1. Wonderful . . our local library does the same but they tend to use ones with faces on and then depict a person behind so it looks as though there is an actual person there but with the book face as their face!

  2. One thing I miss most about book stores is the chance to pick up a book and really enjoy the artwork on the cover…there are times, just like movie posters, when the cover is the best thing about the book! Terrific post!

  3. That’s one of the reasons why I love Bookstagram so much, the combination of taking photos of books, I’m such a visual person, and these covers are so pretty, they are just waiting to be photographed.


  4. Book covers are always fascinating, really enjoyed this one and will have a look at Instagram too. Great Inspiration for new ideas 💡😊
