Today I am encouraging everyone everywhere to please judge books by their covers. (They won’t mind, trust me.)
So now, you tell me: what is your favorite book cover of all time? Also, once you’ve picked your fave, you might answer the subquestion: how much does the cover matter? Have you ever picked up and read a book based on the cover alone?
Also, if you haven’t already, check out The Book Design Review, a blog that discusses covers and picks out some of the coolest. I thoroughly enjoy it.
My favorite cover? My friend K.L. Going’s THE LIBERATION OF GABRIEL KING, which is also one of those cases where the book is even better than the awesome cover. I will also confess to reading some books because a great cover caught my eye.
What’s your favorite?
