My Fan Art Book Covers!

I've promised to post these since I started this blog, so here they are! I made these fan art book covers originally as an activity on, and I picked books that I liked that also could have a fan cover made easily (no fancy photomanipulations or vector graphics).

To anyone who skipped the first paragraph, this is FAN ART, not the actual covers. I'm not trying to steal anything either. I made these myself from public domain photos and the very fact that I spent hours making them means that I am a fan of the books. So go read them!

First I'll put the fan art cover, then I'll show the real cover and a link to Amazon to find out more about the book.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Ooooh those are fun!

I think your cover for The City of Ember is SO much better and more interesting. I also like your version of The Adoration of Jenna Fox better, and your Airborn cover is interesting. Keep it up!

TruNerd, there's a link to follow the blog on the sidebar. It says "Followers" and has all the icons under it of the people who follow my blog. It's right under the huge chunk of text about review books.
