Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 76: Literary Fiction (Part 7)

Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

Some of my favourite covers this week include The Fall Of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, A Manual For Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin, Cities I’ve Never Lived In by Sara Majka, Beautiful Pictures Of The Lost Homeland by Mia Gallagher, After Disasters by Viet Dinh, The Resurrection Of Joan Ashby by Cherise Wolas, The Lesser Bohemians by Eimear McBride, Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett and Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers and artists responsible for the beautiful covers below, but was unable to find this information for a number of those listed. If you know of an uncredited designer responsible for any of these book covers, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
