A to Z Challenge: Martin Bland

The A to Z Challenge is a meme posting every day (except Sundays) in April. Check out the list of 2000+ participants and follow along for 26 days (and 26 letters) of fun. The 2-letter code after each blog name may help narrow your choices - (BO) is Books, (WR) is Writing, (PH) is Photography . . . and, if you're concerned about those NSFW pages, (AC) is Adult Content.

For my theme, I thought I'd do something I generally try very hard not to do, and that is judge a book by its cover. Yes, this year my A to Z Challenge is all about the cover artists who give the books we know and love so much damn shelf appeal.

Continuing through the alphabet, we have Martin Bland, the man behind the stunning covers below:




All three are stunning covers, photo-realistic, and just jam-packed with technology. They're very different perspectives, with one series in-your-face claustrophobic and the other wide-open and vast, but equally striking.

  3. Those are beautiful covers. Very eye catching and they definitely tell you what kind of book you're getting.
