I judge books by their covers

So I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I totally do.  The design is definitely a contributing factor to which books I purchase.  And a stellar design can bring a good book's status up to amazing.  Secretly I think I'd love being a book cover designer.

So I am thrilled that W.W. Norton has started a flickr pool of their book design archive.  It is a whole world of inspiration for me.  Also another great discovery is a website called The Book Cover Archive.  They break it down into  different categories, so you can view book designs by author, designer, genres and so on.  Simply amazing.
