Theme: Four Seasons
For this Covers of the Week #20, the theme of the week is the four seasons of the year: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. The four seasons of the year provide an enchanting theme for romance cover art.
The timeless power of love is as ancient as the Earth and as enduring as the four seasons. To exist is to experience love! At Sweet Savage Flame, romance permeates the atmosphere throughout the year.
In 1971, singer/songwriter Carole King wrote the lovely song “You’ve Got a Friend,” which detailed the lasting strength of love. James Taylor recorded it to great acclaim. Other artists, like Dusty Springfield and Michael Jackson, would put their own twists on the tune. These simple lyrics always stick with me:
Do you have a favorite time of year for romance?
To celebrate the different seasons, from Monday, August 23, 2021, to Sunday, August 29, our 20th edition of Covers of the Week highlights four beautiful romance covers set during Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
