Fantastic Covers Friday is a weekly meme over here at Brave New Shelf where I highlight beautiful covers that I find, from both old books and new, from young adult books.
Ash by Malinda Lo
Jacket photography by Amina Bech*
Jacket design by Alison Impey
Certainly not as flashy as other YA covers, the sullen color palette for Ash both haunting and beautiful. A novel about recovering after the death of a loved one, I feel that this cover, as opposed to the updated version, more accurately reflects the pain and withdrawal one goes through when experiencing such a tragedy.
