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 Mesmerist by Ronald L. Smith, The Magician’s Key by Matthew Cody, Gertie’s Leap To Greatness by Kate Beasley, How to (Almost) Ruin Your Summer by Taryn Souders, The Left-Handed Fate by Kate Milford, The Great Shelby Holmes by Elizabeth Eulberg, The Cat Who Came In Off The Roof by Annie M.G. Schmidt, The Lost Cipher by Michael Oechsle and The Treasure Of Maria Mamoun by Michelle Chalfoun.
Please Note: I made an effort to include attribution wherever possible in regard to the illustrators and designers responsible for the covers below. In some cases I was unable to find this information. If you know of an illustrator responsible for one of the covers below, please let me know and I would be happy to include this in the post!
