True Confections by Katharine Weber. Like a candy shop filled with dazzling colors, patterns, and scents, this cover grabs viewers and doesn’t let go until they’ve satisfied their interest. The swirling candy cane stripes of the background bring classic “confection” to mind and elevates the design to a new level. In fact, the stripes are almost hypnotic. The centered chocolate candy piece creates a perfect display for the title and author. The fact that the typography sticks with what could only be called “candy bar fonts” makes the display seem authentic, and therefore even more clever. One can only hope the offbeat story of love and life is just as sweet!
