Cover Characteristics - Stairs

I've long been a fan of the beautiful Cover Characteristics posts that Kristen curates over at Metaphors And Moonlight so I thought I might try putting together a similar post myself. The idea is to choose book covers which are linked in some way (featuring  object in common, perhaps, or a similar title font) and to then display them artfully. Sounds easy, turns out not to be! I can see if I want to make this a regular feature, I am going to need to start keeping pretty comprehensive lists of covers by theme!


However, for your delectation, my first collection is:

Stairs

  1. Stairs seem to be a new popular choice for thrillers. I've noticed quite a few with stairs on them recently.

    1. Book covers do seem to go in trends. Yellow capital letter font seems popular at the moment too

  2. This is such a cool item to look at! And I agree with chucklesthescot above: it does seem like thrillers have embraced the stairs. Isn't that strange how genres tend to have their own cover trends? That's something I haven't though about before.

    1. Thanks Laura! The thrillers seem to choose indoor stairs too, but staircases that unknown outsiders might plausibly gain access to!

  3. I would have a really hard time remembering what was on which cover. The Diary is the one from this list that really jumps out at me.

    1. I had to scroll through every review on Literary Flits and make lists of common themes. I love longwinded time wastes like that though :-)
      The Diary was a five star read for me

  4. Interesting. I don't think I can even remember some of the covers to do something like this.
