artistic appreciation: book cover love!

sometimes i DO pick a book by it's cover! and most of the time i'm glad that i did. luckily, the website the book cover archive can help me appreciate the designers/artists who create the outward appearance of some of my literary favorites! and feed my (small) typography addiction. shhh....

per the site: "the book cover archive, for the appreciation and categorization of excellence in book cover design. All covers are the copyright of their respective publishers."


  1. You know, I'm so glad you admitted to judging books by their covers, because I totally do the same thing.. if a book has a boring cover I assume the story itself will be boring!
