I don’t own this book and I’ve never read it. I’m sure it’s good. Amazon seems to like it, but that’s not why I’m talking about it. I know you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover but seriously, just look at it. Just look. It’s beautiful. I found this on a design website because she thought it was beautiful. Again, neither of us was talking about content. The yellow is striking and inviting, the writing is in a personal script, and the juxtaposition of freehand script against a geometric book pattern is simple, minimalist perfection.
What struck me is how fresh and modern this cover is; this is a deliberate and calculated choice, as all covers are, and I believe that it works. By “it works,” I mean that it will make a reader curious about the book, to want to take a peek inside, and sometimes that little push is all you need.
This cover would look beautiful hanging out on your desk or on the face of your iPad. I am by no means a book designer or cover artist or whatever the official title may be, but this is something worth considering, yes?
