Top ten Tuesday: covers with dresses

Today’s top ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is a cover freebie. Historical fiction is a really recognizable genre in terms of their cover art. Especially when you look at novels about historical/royal figures. They look all the same. Showing a women in a fancy dress. Mostly the women is recognizable as she is looking straight at you. But this is not always the case.

Today I want to show you ten specific covers from my (to be) read list where a dress is the key element on the cover. So a cover with no head or clear face, but just a dress.

  1. Empress of the night by Eva Stachniak

2. The wardrobe mistress by Meghan Masterson

3. Four sisters, all queens by Sherry Jones

4. Milady by Laura L. Sullivan

4. The queen’s Mary by Sarah Gristwood

5. Queen Elizabeth’s daughter by Anne Clinard Barnhill

6. The Royal Physician’s Visit by Per Olov Enquist (Dutch cover)

7. The queen’s vow by C.W. Gortner

8. The queen’s fool by Philippa Gregory

9. The forgotten queen by D.L. Bogdan

10. Queen of silks by Vanora Bennett

Which one is your favorite?

  1. Yes, there are lots of historical fiction covers with faceless women in pretty dresses! I have read Empress of the Night, The Queen’s Mary and The Forgotten Queen – and I have Queen of Silks on the TBR too.
