Royal Book Cover of the Month – September 2009

There are plenty of new books about royalty this month, so I'm a bit surprised that my favorite book cover is this one:


Elizabeth I: Fortune's Bastard by Richard Rex is a short biography that highlights the queen's vivid and contrary personality. There's nothing special about this cover at first glance, but I like it because it shows Elizabeth's face (not just her neck or the back of her head), and you can plainly see her determined personality. You can also see her signature (or what looks like it), and I like the color scheme. It's pretty and royal.

So this is my pick for September. What do you think of it?
