Poetry Friday!--book spine style

Have you all seen the book spine poems at 100 Scope Notes? They're amazing!

I spotted an SAB title in these wonderful examples at Ms. B's Book Blog.

I've been thinking about titles a lot lately, because we're working on creating the perfect titles for our Spring 2011 books right now.

So I decided to use my BA in poetry and do a few of my own book spine poems, using Stone Arch and Picture Window books, of course.

(Sorry about the not-fabulous image quality!)


the girl who breathed fire--
burning secrets
under the red sun

Don't go in the cellar
on the ghost trail!
Eric won't do it.


Horror of the heights--
how do you get there?
Leap of faith.
Diving off the edge.
Just try it--
slamming success!

Argh, it's an alien!
Yikes, it's a yeti!
Hit it!
