Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 79: Contemporary (Part 16)

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 A Map For Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor, Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali, Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten, They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera, Feral Youth by Shaun David Hutchinson, Release by Patrick Ness, Sparrow by Sarah Moon, Impossible Views Of The World by Lucy Ives and Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga.

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.

  3. As usual, it’s a visual feast! I both adore Silvera’s and Warga’s but thank you for putting a couple of titles, such as The Wicker King and Autoboyography, on my radar, Jen! Sparrow, Meet Cute, and Impossible Views of the World are positively gorgeous too.
