The Great Cover-Up is one of my favorite features to do. Great book covers, wonderful typography, amazing design — and when it comes on a book, it’s a win-win situation. I think the first cover I recall really falling in love with was the one Michael Whelan did for To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams. The picture is incredibly detailed, fantastic, and realistic. I still want a print to frame and hang in my office. Creating covers for my own books has given me a new appreciation for the thought and the work that goes into them.
I began (virtually) collecting. I can use the inspiration and, frankly, I just enjoy drooling over them.
Yes, I keep a towel by my computer in case I get carried away.
I can’t vouch for the actual contents of the books represented below. We’re only here for the eye candy!
