This is such an interesting look at genre covers.  Obviously it’s a snapshot in time, because the lists change hourly.  But that doesn’t reduce its usefulness.  The color tones that different genres skew towards, how certain ones tend to center fewer images, and others are a little more busy across the middle band.  I don’t think anyone, even a skilled designer, can look at just this and then jump right into blasting amazing covers out, but I feel it’s an interesting quick glance at what readers in the genres tend to favor.
