Personal design series. We have all heard the phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover.” However, as a designer this phrase never made sense to me; why have a cover at all if people are meant to just ignore it?

With this in mind, I set out to try and dissect what makes a book cover work. There are a variety of styles found in book design, all of which have their strengths and weaknesses. In my design philosophy, I treat my covers as if they were movie posters. I find it easier to work in this frame of mind as it allows me to focus on structure, imagery, and typography.
