Designing book covers ( kopipesediseng )

A quick bit of book cover inspiration.
The advantage of designing covers for a series/collection of books is that you can approach it like so…
Oliver Sacks book cover design
Designed by New-York based Cardon Webb for Oliver Sacks. Via Design Milk.
Like so…
Angus Hyland book cover design
Designed by Angus Hyland of Pentagram for a series of Laurence King books.
So, and like so…
Penguin book cover designs by YES
Designed by London-based YES Studio for Penguin.
In addition, here’s an excellent cover design resource: The Book Cover Archive, “for the appreciation and categorization of excellence in book cover design,” edited and maintained by Ben Pieratt of General Projects and Eric Jacobsen of Whisky Van Gogh Go.
More than 1,300 covers can be searched by designer, title, author, publisher, publication date, art director, photographer, illustrator, typeface, and genre.
