There seem to be a ton of beautiful, important looking literary fiction jackets out there that prominently feature an illustrated finch or a sparrow. Birds really seem to do it for people. Here's what I'm talking about:


















They're pretty and stuff, but I prefer pure manipulation in my animal covers. Go ahead and gimme puppy porn.




Sometimes, a dog can be a short story collection's best friend.




Could the lamb be the new dog?




This novel is entitled "History Lesson For Girls." Pretty, pretty, pretty pony!




"How Not to Sell a Book to Cat Lovers?" (I laughed.)


Have puppy dog eyes on a book cover ever lead you to purchase?

I admit it, I'd pick up a book that featured an appealing animal. (of course, I'd also have to like the writing.) then again, before I knew who he was, I bought Wonder Boys because of Michael Chabon's photo. :-/

And a robin's egg blue background to boot! Thanks, Christina.

Finch? Sparrow? The cover of my new novel, BIRD IN HAND, falls right into this trend ...
