Creative and Expressive Book Covers

Book covers are hard to design and nice to look at. An effective book cover manages to catch human’s eye and convey the idea behind the book on one single page. However, it’s getting even harder: to make a book really hard to forget, designers need to design the cover in a unique, creative and striking way. That’s not that different from Web where it’s important to build a sound information architecture upon a rather restricted design layout.

The main idea of this post is to provide you with some creative, expressive and appealing book covers. You won’t like all of them, but you’ll definitely find some designs which are worth pondering upon.

“A picture says a thousand words” – these words have been written on book cover and I think it’s really truth. Book cover is one element that usually caught the most attention of the readers and visual memorization is the strongest one. Without reading the entire book, you could be able to get the concept of the story just by looking at the book cover design.
