Atlantic Books Today

Posted by Scott On September - 21 - 2018

The winter 2018 issue of Atlantic Books Today is a great example of a cover that finds a way of making a cold weather season “warm.”

Editor Chris Benjamin says this:  “In our winter issue we want to offer our readers books as an escape, a way to get away from our northeastern climate’s coldest months. Each book is its own world, its own locale and experience. Many also help make sense of our own world. They are the healthiest, least expensive, most comfortable way to stay warm.”

Taking some inspiration from Cottage Life, who has perfected making winter covers warm and cozy, we chose an illustration to get the job done, and used a warm yellow to help raise the temperature too.  The cover exudes seasonal charm.
