Judge a book by its cover

Despite the cliché, judging a book by its cover works. Good cover design says this person made his idea simple and visual enough to tell me what his book is about without saying a word. Making your idea easy for your audience to understand is the essence of good design. And good design leads to good content.

A few of my favorite covers (and not coincidentally a few of my favorite books)  are here, here, here, here and here.
