Covert Lust #51 – Gifted by Donald Hounam
I love this for so many reasons. First, I love the chaotic overlaying of the mathematical equations with magical symbols. Chalk boards covered in equations are gorgeous anyway, but adding in the other symbols just makes it even better.
I equally love how it’s quite simple in a lot of ways – it doesn’t really tell us much about the story, it’s entirely black white and shades of chalky grey, it doesn’t even have the author name on. That strikes me as utter confidences about the design, and they are right to have confidence – it’s one of the most striking and unique covers I’ve seen for a while.
What covers are you lusting after this week?
