Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.
Some of my favourite covers this week include Clara Voyant by Rachelle Delaney, A Stitch In Time by Daphne Kalmar, Wild Rescuers: Guardians of the Taiga by Stacy Plays, Where The Woods End by Charlotte Salter, Just Under The Clouds by Melissa Sarno, The House That Lou Built by Mae Respicio, Front Desk by Kelly Yang, A Possibility Of Whales by Karen Rivers and Amal Unbound by Aisha Saeed.
Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers and artists responsible for the beautiful covers below, but was unable to find this information for a number of those listed. If you know of an uncredited designer responsible for any of these book covers, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
