.@katydidinoz is talking rural romance covers or ‘Women in Akubras’ 👩🏼‍🌾 which are published by (primarily) Australians, for Australians #IASPR18
@katydidinoz Covers act as a kind of code. Though they do not necessarily inscribe the plot, they communicate a promise of readerly enjoyment. #IASPR18
Digital publishing had an impact on romance covers: that of price. ‘Gone are the days of the cover shoot; in are the days of the stock photos.’ #IASPR18
The single woman on the cover of rural romances helped them slide into commercial women’s fiction aesthetically and onto the shelves of Big W and Australian bookstores which have largely excluded romance novels #IASPR18
“Women on rural romance covers are the epitome of ‘She just woke up like this’.”
Maybe she’s born like this, maybe it’s rural romance... #IASPR18
Split title covers (those with the title in the middle, a woman on the upper third and a landscape on the lower third) work better on digital. Cf The House on Burra Burra Lane et al #IASPR18
