A Cover Driven Thing

This is a list of the loveliest book covers and designs... NOT a list of 'favourite / mass produced books' so hopefully no vampire love story bobbins here!

Some book covers are quite gorgeous simply through their inclusion in a well established design series such as the Penguin Modern Classics series, Vintage Classic series and of course the original Penguin books. That certainly doesn't mean any that catch your eye shouldn't be included though.

Some are wonderful through their unique way of interpreting the story within in their design and some just have simply ace artwork. Feel free to add and comment on why your choices make the list.

TheYetiWakes Robert Wascher - What an asswipe!! Going through Goodreads adding his own goddamn book to every list he can find!! I mean that cover is about as cliched as the pose he is pulling in his photo!! Don't you have anything better to do? Dear God man, would not take your advice on anything let alone read or recommend your crappy book!
