- for the appreciation and categorization of excellence in book cover design

Are you actually reading it or just looking at the pictures? Well for the first time I can say outright with no shame attached "Pictures!" This is a great resource for designers who want to spend a few moments browsing the cover designs, all of which are placed under the following headings, DESIGNERS, TITLES, AUTHORS, ART DIRECTORS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, ILLUSTRATORS, GENRES, PUBLICATION DATE & PUBLISHERS.
