You have been waiting all year for this moment and it’s finally here! Drum roll. It’s time to announce our favorite book covers of the year.
Do you ever buy a book because of its cover?
Do you ever just admire the book cover for its artistic qualities?
Regular readers of this website know that I make a list of the best book covers each year. And, it’s not only fun, did you know that book covers also offer valuable leadership and goal setting lessons? (Click here to read more.)
If you want to compare this year’s list with previous years:
“In the old days, books had awful covers and marvelous content; nowadays, the opposite happens.” -Giacomo Leopardi
“If you cannot judge a book by its cover, surely we should not judge an author by one book alone?”-E.A. Bucchianeri
“If people don’t notice your cover or don’t connect with it, the author of the book next to yours will be very grateful.” -David Leonhardt
“Yet I have come to distrust book jackets calculated to prick desire like a Bloomingdale’s window, as if you could wear what you read.” -Lynne Sharon Schwartz
Here are the Best Book Covers of 2018:
The Pisces by Melissa Broder
And, of course, this author is very proud of the design of his own book that came out this yearThe Book of Mistakes: 9 Secrets to Creating a Successful Future by Skip Prichard. I take zero credit for the design. The talented Jody Waldrup designed this cover.
The version that is now out in Mexico looks rather cool too:
The book trailer is also awesome, if you haven’t seen it.
Have a great 2019!!!
