You’ve Got to Be Seen Green … and Purple … and Gold: Ten Book Covers for Mardi Gras

It’s a colorful Top Ten Tuesday. This week, the theme is all about the Carnival celebration Mardi Gras and one of its most identifiable features—and no, I’m not talking about the beads or King Cakes. Rather, it’s those big, bright colors. While their exact history and meaning are often disputed, there’s no doubt that green, purple, and gold have become synonymous with the celebration. So today I’m highlighting ten gorgeous book covers that feature that easily identifiable Mardi Gras palette.
