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,
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?
