Hello and welcome to Worn Pages and Ink! Happy Funky Cover Friday! Have you found any new covers recently that you’d like to share? This week, I’ve chosen a cover that I find very visually peaceful. Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven brings you right into the starts. The constellations and star clusters are brilliant in the night sky and tents line the sandy earth. This is a story of fame and turmoil, but the synopsis indicates that this story is also about how beautiful the world is, despite at that goes on. It’s a story about the relationships that get us through, and the world we live in. The description sounds chaotic, but the cover indicates a vast and wonderful peace that can always be found amid the hectic-ness of day-to-day life.
