Although this month’s selection of new books about royalty is rather limited, I think the covers are better than usual. But they’re just OK, not spectacular. There’s only one that, for me, really stands out:
The Royal Pardon by Helen Lacey examines the role of royal mercy at moments of political upheaval in 14th century England. The cover illustration is a bit ghoulish, but it very clearly illustrates what the book is about. It’s vivid, it’s memorable, and it was a very good choice for this book, I think.
What’s your opinion?
