Book Covers

Yes, we’re inviting you to judge your books by their covers.

What are your favorites? Why? Consider books read to you as a child, books you have been assigned for school, and books you’ve read on your own. Which have the best covers? How well do those cover illustrations capture the essence of that book’s ideas, themes, characters, setting, plot or tone?

Tell us about your favorites in the comments, then read a related article, “How a Book Gets to the Perfect Cover.
