I love this meme hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page celebrating the artistry of book covers. Pop over to The Printed Page and have a look at a selection of wonderful artwork that motivates our book choices (like we need any encouragement). Join in by leaving a link to your Cover Attraction or just leave it here if you’d rather. If you like my button please feel free to copy and paste it into your own post.

This week my cover attraction is a little of the macabre...

I had never read Iain Pears before but was entranced by the cover and the blurb. I haven't read it for years but remember it taking a slow hold on me until I was totally engorssed. I read it just after reading Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose, I was in a medievil reading space.

Both are great reads, if you like medievil whodunits and wildly beautiful prose.

Creepy yes, but very interesting too! I would pick it up to find out more about it. Great choice!

I loved An Instance of the Fingerpost. I enjoy looking at it on my shelf too, it's large and ominous looking. I'll read it again one day I'm sure.
