Whilst sitting down to the first in a new series of the excellent TV Book Club on More 4, it occurred to me that I knew exactly what kind of fiction they were going to discuss, merely by looking at the cover artwork. These days, publishers are completely switched on to tried and tested colour-schemes and typefaces for each genre and sub-category of writing, meaning that things can get pretty repetitive for the consumer. However, the book’s art can do a lot for its eventual sales, so it is perhaps forgiveable that we have all come to regonise the stereotypical ‘women’s personal journey novel’ or ‘childhood sob story’ within a few seconds. With this in mind, I mocked up a few quick examples of what today’s female readers are being marketed. Enjoy.
