Red and White and Black…

YA fantasy covers go through fashions in colours, which change relatively quickly. Perhaps other genres have the same popular colours come and go – I’m not as familiar with their covers, so I couldn’t say. Purple and blue is evidently the hot shades in covers right now (with the girls in fancy dresses trope continuing). Another trend that I’ve noticed recently is red covers with black detail and white focus areas. I quite like these, as they’re intense, grabbing the eye. Several share interesting hand-drawn title treatments, which I quite like. Put together, though, and they all have a similar feel. What do you think?
