    Great Book Covers and How They Are Created

    Then think about how those cover come to be . The BBC looked at the question in a video titled Cover to Cover: How Are Book Jackets Designed? which follows Harper Collins Senior Art Director Alice Moore and her team as they create a cover for Nathan Filer’s novel The Shock of the Fall. It's an interesting look inside the design process.
