Isn't this the truth! I can't count the number of times I've decided to pick up a book only after seeing its intriguing cover. One of my favorite covers is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, which doubles as my favorite book to read as well!

The 1st hardcover edition (1988) of The Twenty-Seventh City




The first time I saw the covers below, I fell in love with them. They have a fashion editorial quality to them. They're gorgeous.

In my "image" class one of the projects we are working on is a book cover design. Here are some of the resources my teacher shared with us and I thought you might find interesting too:

Also, thank you for all that has been posted! I've been finding this thread helpful!

I like this style of blotchy watercolor ... I can't find too many examples at the moment though
