What makes you want to buy a book? Reviews? Word of mouth? For me it’s always been about the covers. I’m very guilty of judging books by them. Luckily this hasn’t steered me wrong.
I seem to have a core group of designers whose work I love – Jessica Hische, Anna Dorfman, Allison Colpoys – they get it right every time. I’m also particularly proud of the cover designed by my dear friend Adrianne Barba from Bird Studios for my soon to be released e-book (see pic #2)!
