Funky Cover Friday

I’m currently reading The Night Stages by Jane Urquhart. I’m about 100 pages in and the writing is absolutely beautiful so far. It’s got this overtone of melancholy that I’m really drawn to. There are a few characters so far who really take my breath away with their struggles and their contemplations. The story is set in Ireland, Newfoundland, and New York. The book drips with Irish culture and that Celtic feel.

I was immediately drawn to this book because of its cover. I love old fashioned bicycles and this image, along with the filter, creates a very rustic sense. The bike looks a bit rustic giving it a sense of neglect which goes hand in hand with the melancholic tone of the book thus far. Here’s the cover:
