Inspiring book cover designs we love

Understanding vast amounts of text and creating a visual summary for it is an extremely demanding and thought-provoking process.

The combination of enthralling minimalist typography, alluring photography and intricate hand-drawn illustrations, make for alluring books. The main aim is to accurately capture the book’s content, as well as grab readers’ attention. Here are book cover designs we adore and draw inspiration from.
