Sooooo.... There was a discussion about this on Goodreads and I thought it would be great to hear the opinions of TFFers on the subject. What do you like to see on book covers and what don't you like? For myself I like something relatively simple but with eye-catching colours. I don't necessarily like a complicated scene or too many characters on a book cover and I prefer artwork to photography. Having a background in biology I also have a pet peeve when fantasy beasts are drawn disproportionately (for example: a dragon with wings that are clearly way too small to carry it in flight) so they will fit on the front of a book. So what do YOU look for on a book cover?
