I dig cool book covers. Just like awesome album art, I'm sometimes tempted to buy a book just because I love the cover. No, I've never actually done that, but after talking to my colleague, Joel, yesterday, he may have convinced me otherwise. He actually has bought books based on their look. And why not? It would be great to have a professional pull off the cover and frame a few. I think they'd look great against the brick wall in our dining room.
Thanks to Joel, I'm now completely obsessed with the site The Book Cover Archive. These are a few from the Archive that I really love.
