You can try to tell us not to judge books by their covers, but we’re just going to do it anyway. A book’s cover serves as a reader’s first glimpse into the story, and we think cover designers deserve credit when their covers go above and beyond. Here, we pick 40 of our favorite book covers across eight different genres.
