Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Teal Book Covers


Teal is such a pretty color, isn’t it? It’s not surprising that such a pretty color makes for pretty book covers! It was, however, difficult to find shades that matched, so some of these are more blue, some are more green, but none of these quite fit with the the blue and green posts, so I’ve stuck them all together here! Enjoy πŸ™‚

The Uploaded by Ferrett Steinmetz
Demon's Wrath by Lisa Collicutt
Aquifer by Jonathan Friesen
Radiate by C. A. Higgins
Bird Box by Josh Malerman
A Murder of Crows by Jeanette Battista
Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand
Renegades by Thomas Locke
Scardust by Xan van Rooyen
The Ferryman Institute by Colin Gigl

Pin the Collage!

I think these are all beautiful covers, but I’m going to have to go with The Uploaded as my favorite. I love the artwork, the unusual perspective, and the whole cyber feel of it. Renegades has a similar cyber feel to it, and like the feel of movement and light as well. It looks like one of those long-exposure photos of a highway. Demon’s Wrath is kind of simplistic with just a drawing of a skull, but I love how it was cut into pieces and shifted, plus the teal smoke adds a lot to it. Aquifer looks really interesting with all those details and gears and things. I love how much the text and eyes POP against the black and white of Radiate and Imitation. Bird Box, A Murder of Crows, Scardust, and The Ferryman Institute make great use of silhouettes, and I love how, despite all using silhouettes, each one has a completely different feel to it!

    I love teal, especially on book covers. This is an awesome topic. πŸ™‚ I think my favorite is Renegades- I love that whole sense of movement and the futuristic look. Like you said, it has that long- exposure view thing going. Imitation is my next favorite and I like The Ferryman Institute a lot too.

    Aquifer is another one I really like, and I’ve always liked that cover for Bird Box.

      I really like the futuristic and long exposure look!

      I’ve always liked that cover too but now they’ve apparently changed most of them to the movie cover which is so annoying.

    Oooh so pretty! I just love all these together. Teal has always been a favorite color of mine😁 The Uploaded is definitely my favorite cover, although I didn’t like the book much. And I think Aquifer is my next favorite.

    I never knew black, white and teal book covers were a thing but there are a lot more of them than I thought there would be! I have to be honest and didn’t even know what shade or colour teal was at all until now πŸ˜› But man, these covers all look so gorgeous when put together…

    That’s quite stunning to see all those teal covers grouped together. I think Uploaded is one of my favorites from these too,it really is a great cover and the perspective is quite unusual for a cover, but totally works here. I also like the look of Renegades and A Murder of Crows.

    I am amazed that you can find covers that blend so well together. Seriously, almost every one of these seem like part of a set. Radiate is probably my favorite.

    I love this cover combination! I think my fave covers are A Murder of Crows and Scardust. I like how they make you think as you try to work out what’s going on in the picture.

    How did I not know there were many books with this colour scheme? For me, I think The Demon’s Wrath might be my favourite. I think it’s the white background, it makes everything else stand out because of it. The Ferryman Institute is lovely, though, I love how dark and mysterious it is. Very atmospheric.
