I am gathering examples of book covers with people falling, or in mid-air. This seems to have been a trend in book cover design in recent years. Thanks in advance!

Six Wakes' cover features a body floating in spaceā€”so, technically neither falling nor mid-air, but certainly a visual relative.

Nothing to Fall Back On, by Betsy Carter. The woman on the cover isn't actually falling but seems about to fall down an open manhole. Not sure if this counts.
