One of the fun types of displays I enjoyed doing at the library was the most simple: books by color. “Have you RED these books?” “C’mon get happy” (books with yellow covers). “I don’t remember the title but the cover was blue.” They’re straightforward and an easy way to get some books out that might otherwise not see display time regularly.
As I was perusing books coming out this year, I noticed something I haven’t noticed in a while, which is purple book covers. I don’t think it’s a not thing nor do I necessarily think we have a new trend, but the array of purple-infused colors caught my eye. I couldn’t not do a big round-up of them.
I’m not going to include descriptions because I think there’s something really appealing about the visual effect alone. All of these are 2015 YA releases — some paperback rereleases of books that had different covers before — and if you can think of other purple or mostly purple 2015 covers, I’d love to see them in the comments.
Of course, if you do a display like this, I’d love to see that, too.
