Readers of this blog know that I love books. There must be some psychological label for someone who must have a book within reach at all times. Whether at home or at the office, whether on a flight or a long drive, I am uncomfortable unless a book is close by.
In recent years, my career has me surrounded with books. As I walk down an aisle of books, I need to use all my willpower not to stop and start browsing. And what captures my attention? Book covers.
Book Covers Pull You In
Do you ever buy a book because you are attracted to its cover? Book covers do that. A well-designed book jacket stops you. Maybe makes you squint or smile or pause for a second. It calls you to pick up the book and look inside.
