Book Covers

by Anchor-Of-My-Eye


A few months ago, I started a job in publishing.  One of my job responsibilities is selecting cover designers and working with them to finalize designs for our books.  Although I've always responded to the design of books as a reader, I never had reason to think about it as much as I do now.  Some of my favorite designers:
