Looking back at book cover trends of 2015 one that definitely stood out is FEATHERS! I love feathers. They can be colorful, whimsical, delicate, and unexpected. However as the year progressed more and more feathers started popping up on book covers eliminating the unexpected element. There are new emerging trends that I hope to share with you in the new year, but today let’s look at some book covers with feathers. Most of these are popular YA books. Have you noticed the feather trend?

“That’s the beauty of it. Have you seen the contraptions these magicians build to accomplish the most mundane feats? They are a bunch of fish covered in feathers trying to convince the public they can fly, I am simply a bird in their midst.”

  • okay, now that you put all these feather-covers together the trend starts to be very obvious. although it seems a bit overused, THEY’RE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL. i especially love six of crows (maybe because I LOVE SIX OF CROWS) and also magonia, red rising, and this is where the world ends! ahhhh i’m such a sucker for pretty covers <333

    • I know it’s quite interesting to see how many book covers with feathers I was able to gather. I definitely like the trend of feathers and I can’t wait to read Six of Crows soon! I am a sucker for pretty covers too and that’s exactly why I started this Cover Trend post. Happy New Year Alexandra!
