I love monochrome – black and white – photography. Changing any picture from full colour to black and white instantly creates such a moody and atmospheric image. Naturally, this got me thinking of book covers. I usually pay more attention to very strong and vibrant or multi-coloured covers, rather than monochrome. They are so eye catching, and I often overlook the plainer black and white covers when they are side by side. Finding pure black and white book covers that stood out was a lot harder than I thought it would be! I've chosen 8 of my favourites to share, and I've given myself a bit of leeway. The text might be a different colour, but the majority of the book cover is grey-scale.
*Note* With the exception of Come Alive, I haven’t read any of these books – this is purely based on cover lust :)
