So first up this year is a trio of underwater covers, inspired by Kay’s “Artsy Shelf Underwater” post from last year: A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler (which is one of the covers that Kay posted), Rain Village by Carolyn Turgeon (which I immediately thought of when I saw Kay’s covers) and Spirits of the Sea: The Siren’s Song, a CD by France Ellul.
Rain Village was actually published first, by Unbridled Books, in 2006. A Blue So Dark came out with Flux last year. (Spirits of the Sea used this image first, as it was released in 2005, according to Amazon.) I like all three covers, but I think A Blue So Dark is my favourite. But then again, maybe I like Rain Village better. I can’t decide. What do you think?
