As an avid reader, I'm attracted by covers at lot.
If I'm just browsing books at the bookstores or the library without any specific tittle in mind, most of the time, it's the cover that will pick up my curiosity and make me read the summary.
And as a professional, I know the power of a good picture combined with words. That's why I was curious about this book and what the author has to tell us.

It's a very simple and effective book that let a large place to the book designers. And it was cool to spot a book, I have read, and have some informations about the designer and how he/she is working.
Also interesting to see that for some designers, I was drawn into their art, sensibily and world regardless of the book. I would have easily picked all their design and be curious about the story.
So, I've learned also a lot about me as a reader just by learning about cover design.

Interesting book for the lovers of design and books.
