Cover Characteristics - Eiffel Tower


Cover Characteristic - The Eiffel Tower


This is a new meme hosted by my friend Lu at A Muggles Magical Book Blog.

Each week she's posting a specific characteristic that can be found on many books and then she'll list her 5 favs! So I just naturally had to join the fun.

You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great!

Today’s cover characteristic: The Eiffel Tower

So here we go...




5. Le Divorce

Cool cover, although not such a very cool movie




4. Encounters in Paris
Encounters in Paris
The cover looks so serene 




3. Paris, Paris Journey into the city of light
Paris, Paris: Journey into the City of Light
The cover is beautiful! I just love the cloudy sky...




2. Eiffel's Tower
Eiffel's Tower: And the World's Fair Where Buffalo Bill Beguiled Paris, theArtists Quarreled, and Thomas Edison Became a Count
I wanted to make this number one, because it's STUNNING!
Just love the B&W cover and the tower lighten up like that!






NUMBER 1!
Murder on the Eiffel Tower (Victor Legris, #1)
Come on! Tell me you don't just love this old style cover.
I love the scripts at the edges, the colour of the page, the font style, even the bee sitting there like it's waiting to fly away. The tower looks like it was drawn onto an old map!!


Tell me what are your favorite cover.

Isn't there also a movie cliche that says every house or apartment set in Paris must have a view of the Eiffel Tower from the window? ;-) That's what your post reminded me of!

I'm impressed that you were able to come up with five different covers so quickly. I can't think of a single one! =P Is Paris one of your favourite settings in fiction? =)

Hi hi!!

Thanks :), but I have to admit that I haven't really read much books that are set in Paris... But maybe I should start :)

After my visit to Paris I can really appreciate this theme! I also like the Murder on the Eiffel Tower cover the most :)
