This month’s new new royalty books are a somewhat pedestrian lot. There are the usual headless-woman covers (for example, The Countess and the King), but also a few non-decapitated women (For the King’s Favor, Sphinx’s Queen).
My favorite cover of the month features a woman who knew very well how to keep her head: England’s Queen Elizabeth I.
Elizabeth’s Women by Tracy Borman is about female friends, rivals, and foes who shaped the queen’s life. I like this cover because it’s nice-looking and fits the book’s topic nicely, too. What do you think of the book’s cover? Does it grab your attention?
