Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 77: Non-Fiction (Part 8)

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 Timekeepers by Simon Garfield, Turbulence by Annette Herfkens, The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone, Clearing The Air by Gregory Wood, The Long Run by Catriona Menzies-Pike, One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter by Scaachi Koul, The Genius Of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman, Ars Botanica by Tim Taranto, Nicotine by Gregor Hens and The Glass Eye by Jeannie Vanasco.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers, artists and illustrators responsible for the beautiful covers below whenever possible. If you know of an uncredited contributor responsible for any of these designs, 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.

  1. I’ve recently been wanting to get more into non-fiction so this post was actually very helpful for getting recs, and also just lovely to look at because THEY’RE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL. My favourite is probably Ars Botanica because JUST LOOK AT IT. GAH. SO PRETTY.
