Favorite Book Covers

Whoever said "don't judge a book by its cover" has not seen this TedTalk by master book cover designer Chip Kidd. I find book cover design to be a fascinating industry, and this talk gives it a fresh and funny perspective from someone who is at the top of the field.

My favorite book cover design is that of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time". I love it because of the cutout feature, the simple but compelling graphic of an upside down dog, and the clean layout of the text. What about you? Do you have a personal favorite book cover design? Share below!
