Got INK? (20)

INK on book covers is a huge trend that seems to show up in a variety of genres. Got INK? features some covers that caught my eye. Here is a perfect example...
Toads and Diamonds
by Heather Tomlinson
March 30, 2010

Diribani has come to the village well to get water for her family's scant meal of curry and rice. She never expected to meet a goddess there. Yet she is granted a remarkable gift: Flowers and precious jewels drop from her lips whenever she speaks.

It seems only right to Tana that the goddess judged her kind, lovely stepsister worthy of such riches. And when she encounters the goddess, she is not surprised to find herself speaking snakes and toads as a reward.

Blessings and curses are never so clear as they might seem, however. Diribani’s newfound wealth brings her a prince—and an attempt on her life. Tana is chased out of the village because the province's governor fears snakes, yet thousands are dying of a plague spread by rats. As the sisters' fates hang in the balance, each struggles to understand her gift. Will it bring her wisdom, good fortune, love . . . or death? (summary from Goodreads)

Have you seen any INKED covers?

Love the colours on the Toads and Diamonds book..beautiful!

Penguin (Ink) is releasing some of their classic books with ink inspired cover. Some of the covers are pretty nice. My personal favourite is the Bridget Jones Diary.
