I love a good book jacket. So often I find myself wondering the aisles of our local library just hoping for that serendipitous moment when the color, type, or photo on the outside of a book with catch my attention. Sometimes its like we are strangers meeting across a room.
What causes us to stop, pause, and make our way over to that certain book, hoping for that instantaneous connection that will compel us to pick it up? Looks do count. Sure, a great story helps, but the packaging has to intrigue you. Engage you.
To me the best book covers are those with a sense of humor.

I love the creative use of text and image by John Gall.
This cover idea has been done before, but it still works. This was designed by David Pearson. Do you have a love affair with book covers?
