The Roving Reader

Love the way the cover art plays tricks on the eyes.  First glance...didn't see the swans, just a design!  Second glance...swans!  The combination with the font choice gives it a creepy sorts edge too in my opinion....

I love graphics/pics that "play" with the eyes. In this one I saw the swans right away and you are right, there is a bit of a creepy edge to the cover art and fonts!

I love the cover for Three Black Swans (so pretty).
I read it already (in four hours)and it's an amazing read.

I've actually heard this is supposed to be a really really good book. Love the cover as well, so different.

Isn't that strange - my eyes went instantly to the swans. Then I saw that the bottom two made a heart shape.

the1stdaughter: Wow...second one with good news on the book. Definitely have to check some of those out...

Petty Witter: See? It's like one of those ink blot tests.... ^_^
