Great Book Covers and How They Are Created

Biff Barnes

What makes a great book cover?

The New York Times Book Review just released its list of the Best Covers of 2013. Take a look at the slideshow of these twelve covers and see what you think.

My favorite from the NY Times list

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.

Leave a comment and share your thoughts about the covers that are most memorable for you.
