I have been thinking about this for several months and decided to share my feelings about one current trend in book covers. Seems to be fashionable to display women with most of their heads cut off. I thought it suggested intrigue when I first saw it on Phillappa Gregory's The Queen's Fool and it was okay for the two other's in the group, The Virgin's Lover and The Other Boleyn Girl. I don't know exactly when the first cover like this came out, but I became aware of them first with the three books by Gregory. Now whenever I look over my list of recommended books on amazon.com I'm surprised by how many other books have similar covers. Or when in a book store, they are all over the place. A little originiality, please!
