Link of the Week: Book Cover Archive

Ever since we were in elementary school, we have learned not to judge a book by its cover. The Book Cover Archive, a showcase of book cover designs and designers, disputes this mantra and tells readers to do the exact opposite! The covers are categorized by different classifications, such as titles, art directors, and genres, and each cover is spectacular. This website is a fantastic marketing tool because clicking on the covers brings readers to a page that lists the title’s metadata. One such piece of information is a clickable link to the book’s Amazon listing. Not only does the Book Cover Archive work in conjunction with Amazon, but it is also an interactive website such that the creators ask visitors for feedback on each entry. Overall, the Book Cover Archive is of interest to publishing students because it combines various facets of the industry and places them in one neat package!
