Inspire your heart with cover art

Today is Inspire Your Heart with Art Day, and so today, wherever you maybe, get out and see some inspiring art.  Most cities have public art, or galleries, but a well-kept garden is also art.  So too, are book covers, music and magazine covers. Or at least they used to be.  Granted there is marketing going on, but take a wander through your local bookstore or library and check out the art of the cover.

For anyone interested in Classic American covers, check out Richard Minsky’s book published in Oct of 2010. It sold out its first run of 2000 copies immediately, but they have since reprinted.  Chock full of beautiful covers from the late 19th and early 20th century.  Really, does it get any better than this . . . .
