How does one get into the field of designing book covers? If I had artistic talent of this sort I think it would be a fascinating job, notwithstanding great challenges (i.e. pain-in-the-ass authors who have a 'vision' for their book cover).
If you have any thoughts on how one goes about doing such an awesome thing, I'd love to learn.
From The New York Times' Book Design Review blog, I really liked these two book covers. Intolerable Anarchy made me think of my sister's anarchist boyfriend. He'd probably dig it and regardless of your personal views on anarchy, I thought it was a humorous cover. Kind of a 'stick-it-to-you' concept.
But Being and Time....now this one reminds me of all the old Blue Note album covers I so dearly love. With the advent of iTunes, I wonder if album cover art will vanish? What a sad day that will be.
