Judge a book by its cover
My wife reads more books in a month than I probably read in a year, yet I love books, and its mainly for the covers. You can get such a mix of styles, illustration, art direction all on the shelves of your local book store. It'd be nice to have enough money to have a bookcase full of books and be able to say "fuck knows what the books are about, but check out the covers". Obviously copy man James is wanting to set me on fire at this point, but fuck it, covers rule and a book with a shit cover ain't gonna get me sweating. Where's all this leading you may ask...well I came across this blog the other day - The Book Design Review Good shit from a fella called Joseph Sullivan. Check it out, it's worth it. Cheers, Ben.
