Book covers have always fascinated me. The common thought is that one should not "judge a book by its cover" but really, that's just absurd. With the vast selection of books, novels, novellas, magazines, comics, graphic novels, etc. being published every single day, it is incredibly important to have a cover which tells a tale. A cover should never give away the story, but in looking at the cover the consumer/reader should know if that book is exactly what they're looking for. The following selection of book covers are for both published and unpublished works and showcase a diverse exploration of style and tone.
