cell coverage: everything you need to survive the apocalypse

Another caps-happy, simple red cover stopped me in my tracks again. Imagine that.

It could be the cover’s use of negative space. Or perhaps that loud cluster of colors I heard from clear across the room. Actually, it was those two attributes joined by that doozy of a title that made me hone in on this cover, like moth to flame.

Pun totally intended, of course.

    Which reminds me: I have this on my iPad!

    Also reminds me of Peter Mendelsund’s (far superior) cover for Ben Marcus’s The Flame Alphabet. http://amzn.to/zS0kVp.

      I’ve seen that one! A few interviewees have claimed Mendelsund as inspiration. Love his work. Let me know what you think when you read it, for sure.

    I actually really like the leaping flames of this but on the whole this cover doesn’t do much for me at all.

    I want to animate that paper explosion NOW! I’m not alone on this, right? Right?

    Oooh pretty! Love the bright colors.

    I really like this cover, it looks even better in real life, the red is stunning. I read this as an e-ARC and was a bit disappointed. It’s not a bad book but it has a lot of religious undertones I would’ve liked to know about BEFORE reading the book (it’s not mentioned in the back cover text at all and the cover doesn’t hint at it either).

      It certainly is vibrant in real life — thanks for sharing your thoughts on the book!

    I really love the flames and the read – pretty good cover

  7. Katie says:

    Um, yes. This cover is awesome. Now to go find a review…

    It looks all 3D and what not. LOVE.

    I really really like the color. The red is gorgeous. I really really love the font choice and the way the title is set out.

    There’s something though that is a little off for me and I can’t quite put my finger on what. It is still a great cover. I find it kind of heart stopping in real life.

    • capillya says:

      The only thing that felt off to me was the fact that the blurb was only slightly smaller than the title. Maybe that?

    YES. So happy to see this cover here! I am in lurrrrve with the cover.

    Negative space wheeeee. And ooh, a blurb from Morgan Matson, eh? Pretty poppin’ cover right there (ahaha. hah. ha).

    *slinks off in the aftermath of lameness of comment*

    I never noticed the blurb from Morgan Matson before. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour was one of my fave books last year. This cover is fabulous.
