50 Beautifully Designed Book Covers for Inspiration

Books displayed on a shelf in a shop need to attract prospective buyers, and the first and most important way that can be done is with an eye-catching cover design. Whether it is very significant to the content of the book, or completely ‘off the wall’ in its design, it is what is going to make people pick the book up and read the back cover.

There are many articles advising designers to look around them and to look everywhere for inspiration, and perhaps some do walk into bookshops and browse the book and magazine cover designs, but I am guessing most don’t often have either the time or the inclination to do that, so today we are bringing you a collection of beautifully designed book covers for your inspiration – some new, some old, and in many and varying styles of design, just like browsing a book store.
