Romance Novels Reimagined

This is freaking hilarious!

I think a lot of us can agree that a large number of romance novel covers are pretty silly and are just asking to be ridiculed. So that’s exactly what I did. I bought a few of them at the used book store and got to work on them. The artwork almost writes its own jokes.

Some of my favourite covers:

There are plenty more for you to laugh over at the link above, and some of the readers also submitted their own entries, some of which are even funnier! And don’t forget to check out the naughtier covers, which is just hysterical!

    Those are too funny. What’s with the last one, doesn’t he get cold? I think a lot of titles and covers are strange, particularly from a marketing point of view; sometimes publishers try to appeal to a wide audience and there’s too much going on, or they don’t represent the story very well. I know Danielle Steel has some weird covers… but hey, they sell. 🙂

    nylusmilk: oh, he’s cold, that’s why he’s throwing the hissy fit! 😛

    well, sure danielle steel can sell weird covers. i’d think she has created a large enough fan base of her works to be able to sell stainless steel pots. :mrgreen:
