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.
Who Owns The Future? by Jaron Lanier
Jaron Lanier is the father of virtual reality and one of the world’s most brilliant thinkers. This explosive cover for his latest book ‘Who Owns the Future?’ illustrates the poisonous concentration of money and power in our digital networks.
Patience by Daniel Clowes
‘Patience’ is a psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness. The cover is beautifully illustrated by Clowes with the title printed in striking silver foil.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
This fully restored edition of Anthony Burgess’ original text of ‘A Clockwork Orange’, features a simple yet incredible effective minimal approach.
Ubik by Philip K. Dick
Philip K. Dick’s celebrated science-fiction thriller leaves readers guessing until the very last page. This spectacular Folio Society edition of ‘Ubik’ features a new introduction by award-winning writer Kim Stanley Robinson and illustrations by La Boca.
Satin Island: A novel by Tom McCarthy
‘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.
