Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 85: Contemporary (Part 17)

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 My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma, From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon, The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo, A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena, Comics Will Break Your Heart by Faith Erin Hicks, Chaotic Good by Whitney Gardner, Notes From My Captivity by Kathy Parks, Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry and Valley Girls by Sarah Nicole Lemon.

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.
