Cover Art

When browsing the shelves at your local library branch, do you ever select a book for its cover? Is the old adage true? Maybe you can tell a book by its cover art. Last fall The Book Design Review listed its favorite cover designs. The Fairfax County Public Library owns a few of the selections.

Words Without Borders by Alane Salierno Mason

Like You’d Understand, Anyway by Jim Shepard

Small Crimes in an Age of Abundance by Matthew Kneale

Strawberry Fields by Marina Lewycka

One Perfect Day by Rebecca Mead

Wish I Could Be There by Allen Shawn

Tree of Smoke by Denis Johnson

Check out the designs on The Book Design Review's blog. Which is your favorite?
