Tag Archives: cover

My friend recommended this book to me, so I put it on hold at the library. Yesterday I went to pick it up, and and stared in shock/horror at the cover. This is what I saw.


This doesn’t tell me anything about the book. If I saw this on a bookshelf, I would never pick it up. Sad, I know, I’m judging a book by its cover. So here’s what I’m going to do: When I finish reading this book, I’ll redesign the cover. Hmm…I think I might have to turn this into a regular thing. Every time I read a book that I don’t absolutely love the cover, I’ll redesign it.


If I found this book at the bookstore, I would buy it right away. Forget the whole “what is it about?” thing. This is a beautiful book design by Nina Jua Klein.
