666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce. A fun design for a fun title, I always say. (Not really, but it makes sense.) I love the simple color scheme of the cover: black, white, shades of grey, and splashes of yellow-green. The fancy and glamorous gate in the background channels Park Avenue to perfection. The title sits in a black bar, as though a sign on the gate, which is also clever. The title typography is gothic and sophisticated, just like the supposed subject matter of the book. What I most enjoy about the design is the spray of leaves and vines falling into the illustration from the upper left corner, both black and colored. If you look closely, you can see that some of the black leaves are in fact bats—hinting at witches, perhaps?
