The period artwork is lovely and delicate, and I like the little "wrapper" with the "seal" imprinted on it. And yes, I do know that the green dress is not the right period, but it's the right feel, so I figure what the hey.
Most of the time, people say that they don't care what kind of cover a book has, that they read for the story. But covers do matter, if only on a subliminal level.

How do these covers set the stage for these stories? What tone do they convey?
Lauren, did you have any say in the design of the book covers?
Everyone, what other covers have you seen lately that have captured the stories inside?

Great topic. I love the book covers. I almost bought the paperbacks to the first two books even though I already have the hardcovers in order to own different covers. I particularly love the cover for the paperback version of Black Tulip (I have to admit, even more than the original hardcover one).

Lauren, do you get any input when it comes to covers, in terms of colour scheme, style, etc.?
