Great Book Cover Designs – The Bookcase No.1

Published Oct 16, 2019

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:

Douglas Coupland: Everywhere is Anywhere is Anything is Everything

‘Everywhere is Anywhere’ is the first monograph to provide a comprehensive overview of Douglas Coupland’s visual art practice. We love the artistic approach on the cover and that eye-catching multicolored spine is nice bonus.

‘Satin Island’ is an unnerving novel that promises to give us the first and last word on the world—modern, postmodern, whatever world you think you are living in. The amazing cover was created by stellar designer Peter Mendelsund.
