Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I’ve been wanting to participate in another Top Ten Tuesday since the last (and first) time I did it, but I wasn’t able to get around to it until now. This week’s theme is just too good to pass up, though! So, without further ado, here are my top ten book covers I’d frame as pieces of art (in no particular order).
(Also: yay, I finally figured out how to use the PicMonkey collage creator properly!)

1. The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
2. The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón (Dutch cover)

I really like your choices and I’d have the cover of Matilda on my wall! The Dutch cover of The Angel’s Game is stunning too.
The Dutch cover of The Angel’s Game was pretty much the first one that came to mind! It’s SO gorgeous!
Water for Elephants is gorgeous. And of course, Matilda. Why didn’t I think of that one….?
I’d love to have a poster of Matilda on my wall, both for nostalgic reasons and because it’s just a wonderful picture. Perhaps I should browse some poster websites… 🙂
I think I wil too!
It is, isn’t it? 🙂
Ooo. I had never seen that cover of Paper Towns! Love it. I would definitely frame it. Great list!
Thank you! I love that cover 🙂
I wouldn’t be able to stick with one Roald Dahl choice if I had to pick one–I’d frame them all!

Very true! Matilda has the most memories for me, though, so I went for that one! 🙂
You have some great covers on your list! The Dutch cover of The Angel’s Game is super pretty. And I ❤ Quentin Blake's illustration AND love Matilda to pieces – it would make a great print to put on a library wall.
Thanks! The cover of The Angel’s Game is perhaps my number one favourite cover. It’s so beautiful! I think I’m going to search for a nice Matilda poster, because now I want to hang it on my wall, too!
I’ve never seen that edition of Paper Towns before! I LOVE it! I have the minimalistic edition with the yellow background and the bus, and that’s just awesome too. 😉 I almost always adore John Green’s covers! My TTT!
It’s great, isn’t it? 🙂 I don’t know that cover, but now I’m curious, so I’ll google it! John Green’s covers are always nice, indeed.
Beautiful covers. I haven’t seen this edition of Paper Towns before.
Thank you! I really like that one 🙂
