Good book covers are attention grabbers, great icebreakers, and make great, affordable collector’s items. Imagine how they’d looked on your shelf (Assuming they have nice, gorgeous spines too)! Once, I was so taken by this book that this lady was reading because of its cover that I went over to the lady and asked what she was reading. Can’t remember the title, because it was too long haha 😛
As I mentioned, book covers are great icebreakers. As you can see how Chris Cleave’s The Other Hand saved me from being known as an anti-social!
For more of these gorgeous covers, go to The Book Cover Archive (thanks for the link, Izam!), and the ones here, are some of what I liked 🙂 (Some I like it for their concept, some the idea, and some, purely aesthetics :))
What’s your favourite book cover?
And here…I spotted some similarities….Coincidence, maybe?
