Royal Book Cover of the Month – December 2010

In a month of lackluster new royal book covers, I think this one stands out from the crowd:

The Lady in the Tower by Alison Weir tells the story of the swift downfall of Henry VIII's second wife, Anne Boleyn. Instead of displaying an already well-known portrait of the queen, or following the current fad of showing the back of a woman's head, the cover of this new paperback edition depicts Anne Boleyn's famous "B" necklace. It's an attractive, elegant cover, worthy of its subject.

Have you read "The Lady in the Tower" yet? I haven't, but it's on my list…
