The Comfort of Thingy-ness Vol VIII

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I’ve done a Comfort of Thingy-ness post! So you know what that means…a new round up of some of my favorite covers! In case you missed them, check out Vol I/II/III/IV/V/VI/VII! What have been some of your recent favorites?

Also, if you love book covers as much as I do, you should check out the Great American Novels 1000 piece puzzle (sold only at Barnes and Noble)! I made it a few weeks back, and now it sits as a permanent (for the foreseeable future) part of my coffee table decor.

The Comfort of Thingy-ness Vol IV

There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts.” – Charles Dickens

Although I sincerely hope that what’s in between the covers is inspiring too, sometimes the mastery of the cover design overtakes the writing. Being a designer, I’ve purchased an insane amount of books based purely on their design. I mostly purchase tangible books (since now I read everything on my Kindle) purely on their aesthetic appeal to me. I continuously use them for inspiration when working on projects, and in an odd way they lift my spirits when I am sitting at my office desk and looking over at them on my bookshelf. Below, you can check out some of my favorites over the past few months! What have been some of your top book designs over the past year? Sound off!
