I enjoyed this recent video from Random House giving an insight to how their designers approach creating book covers. Thought you might enjoy it, too. 🙂

    Very interesting. It rather puts into perspective the ‘off the shelf’ covers people sometimes get stuck with if they go down the indie route. Lucky those who have artist/photographer skills or contacts.

    Reblogged this on Bibliomancy and commented:
    Interesting both for those who design their own book covers and for those who are simply curious about what goes into the process.

    The saying “You are not supposed to judge a book by its cover.” should be respected, but the work of Chip Kidd makes it damn hard not to judge it the best way possible! I deeply respect his work and being.
