45 Simple Yet Engaging Book Cover Designs



In this article we decided to do the unthinkable, “judge a book by it’s cover.” Let’s think about it, if there was no need for book cover design, a lot of graphic designers would be out of a job. Not only that, but authors would just have the most minimal and or basic book cover designs. If this was a reality, this world wouldn’t be the same. Also one of the biggest reasons we need book cover designs, is because “A picture says a thousand words.” Agree with it or not, but this quote is quite true. With confusion at mind, you are probably pondering how both of the quotes mentioned can be comprehended without contradiction.

“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” - you should not judge anything/anyone by the way it looks.

“A picture says a thousand words.” – even though it says a thousand words, does not meant the 1000 words are correct.

Most people get attracted by the books cover, and if they’re interested they will read the short description on the back cover. So in the celebration of book cover design, we have collected 45 books that will catch your eye.
