Favourite Book Covers of 2019

These are my favourite covers of the books that I have read over the course of 2019. They are in no particular order, but the one at the bottom is my cover of the year. The way I see it, the cover of book has one job only and that is to be catching or attractive enough to make me want to pause, pick them up and then make me want to read it. In my opinion, all of these covers do that.

And my cover of the year has to be Underland. Like all of Stanley Donwood’s images it is just staggering

    Dark Skies is my favourite (visually), but closely followed by Aurora and Orchid Summer. 🙂

      The blue foiling on the book is quite beautiful

    Love Stanley Donwood’s art too. I found his book of writing a little too off-beat though – Humour- pub a couple of years ago – it had a great cover and endpapers, natch! 🙂

      I think that he is great. I have a picture on my office wall that he did for Dan Richards book, Climbing Days

    What delicious covers all of those are!

      Aren’t they just. Cover art is so much better now days
