Book Cover Design Inspiration

I must confess to you that I do not read digital books.  I refuse to do it.  I realize many people find electronic books more convenient, but I still prefer real books.  I love how they smell.  I love actually turning pages.  I love putting them on my bookshelves or passing them along to friends when I finish reading them.  I love libraries and bookstores.  I love real books.

Often when I am looking for a book to read, I don’t know what book it is that I want.  I go to the store, and I peruse the shelves until I spy an attractive or unique cover.  The cover of a book is equivalent to the packaging of other products.  It separates the books from each other, making some more appealing than others.  While the the writing is the product, the cover is the product packaging.  The quality and content of the writing will ultimately drive the sales of a book; however, the cover might be what initially attracts people it.  Book covers are really just another form of marketing.  Here are ten example of really cool book cover designs for your inspiration.
