Best February book cover: Queen Elizabeth II

Last month I asked this blog's readers to choose the best royal book cover of February 2012. The votes are now in, and the winner by a landslide is…


Queen Elizabeth II: A Diamond Jubilee Souvenir Album by Jane Roberts. This is a biography in photographs, with 300 full-color illustrations.

A sample of what voters had to say about this book's cover:

Queen Elizabeth looking so opulent and regal in that white fur personifying everything majestic, regal and royal. –Ukroyalist

I think Queen Elizabeth's picture jumps right off the book. It attracted me first. –Lynn

It is great to see the Queen looking so happy! –P.L. Smith

My thanks to all who voted, and I hope you'll weigh in on the March Book Cover of the Month, too! The candidates will be posted on this blog later in the month. You can visit the Books page right now to see all of this month's new books about royalty. Want to nominate one for Book Cover of the Month? Leave a comment below!
