Great Book Cover Designs – The Bookcase No.4
Published May 25, 2020
Yes, it’s OK to judge a book by its cover.
If you’re anything like us, sometimes you do buy a book (or two) just because that cover looks so damn good. Here are some of our favorites this month.
Cover image: We set the dark on fire by Cristina Pagnoncelli & Molly Fehr
Laline Paull’s first novel “The Bees”, tells the story of Flora 717, a sanitation worker bee doomed by her birth to the lowest caste of her community.
The simple yet striking black and yellow cover features a gold foil hive pattern with a clever cutout element that reveals part of the inner cover’s illustrated artwork
San Francisco-based studio Jason Schulte Design created this vibrant illustrated cover for ‘Write On’, a creative writing journal for kids published by Clarkson Potter and Penguin Random House.
Designed by Art & Sons and published by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the catalogue for Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s ‘This is Life’ exhibition features another great use of cutouts on the book’s slipcover, producing a striking visual effect.
Publishing company Harper Collins commissioned lettering artist Cristina Pagnoncelli and illustrator Molly Fehr to produce this eye-catching cover for Tehlor Kay Mejia’s romantic fantasy novel ‘We Set the Dark on Fire’
In ‘The eye’, Nathan Williams brings more than 90 of the most iconic and influential creative directors into the spotlight. The cover’s simple illustration and typography combined with a bold red background makes for an eye-catching composition.
The cover for ‘Almost Famous Women’ uses a similar approach and takes it even further with a fully hand-drawn / handmade aesthetic.
Graphic designer Chaaya Prabhat created this beautifully illustrated cover for ‘Love as we know it’ for Delhi Poetry Slam, published by Poem Pajama.
We love the vintage look of this leather-bound cover for the Canterbury Classics edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s Collected Works.
