A good way to get inspiration when designing a book cover is to take a look at existing covers – you can visit a bookstore, go online, or ask friends, writers, and those in your reading groups. Pay special attention to covers that have received notable praise in your relevant genre. To get you started, the CompletelyNovel team have selected their favourite book covers and stated why each one works for them.
Anna Lewis – co-founder of CompletelyNovel.com
Anna has chosen The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, and The BFG by Roald Dahl, illustrated by Quentin Blake. Here’s what she said about each:
The Time Traveller’s Wife: I love the way that the images in The Time Traveller’s Wife sum up the book so elegantly. And the blurriness of the background also belies that sense of disrupted reality inside.
The BFG: Quentin Blake is just such an incredible illustrator and I was a massive Roald Dahl fan so I had to include one of their books! Such tremendously exciting images to look at, especially as a kid.
Oliver Brooks – co-founder of CompletelyNovel.com
Oli is our technical genius at CompletelyNovel, and this is reflected in his choice of cool favourite covers. He tells us:
My favourite covers are the O’Reilly tech books. They are instantly recognisable, with a cool, often rare, animal on the front of each one, the identity of which can be found out in the book.
The books are also colour coded so you can identify which ones are to do with design, databases, programming languages etc.
Sarah is the newest member of the fabulous CN team and has already made her mark with her excellent creativity. See what Sarah selected as her favourite covers and why:
The Book Thief: This is my all-time favourite book cover. The simple, yet striking illustration and ‘old’ parchment effect on the background appeals to anyone who loves books.
The Night Circus: The inverted silhouette illustrations and simple colour scheme makes this stand out from every other book on the shelf. Love it!
Jazzmine’s favourite cover is for a selection of short stories by Stuart Evers – find out why she chose it.
Ten Stories About Smoking: I think the boxed-edition of Stuart Evers’ Ten Stories About Smoking is one of the most clever cover designs I have seen.
The book comes in a box which is designed as a cigarette box. When you open it at the top, just as with a real cigarette box you can see the butts of 5 cigarettes, which cover the front and back of the paperback book inside. The attention to detail is spot on; it really does look like a large cigarette box almost to scale.
Picador’s design for this book is so on theme, and makes the collection feel all the more special. I absolutely adore it!
So, what are your favourite covers, and why?
The Da Vici Code. I suppose the title was the strongest image.
Couldn’t read the book though!

Manfred said he didn’t philadelphia phillies jersers know that new york mets jersers the Marlins’ new owners planned to tear it down
In the early moments of the interview, Le Batard asked Manfred whether he knew prior to the recent sale to the group fronted by Bruce Sherman and Jeter whether the new owners planned to slash payroll. After some prodding (and Le Batard’s saying that the commissioner was lying), Manfred answered, We do not get involved in operating-level decisions in chicago white sox jersers the ownership approval process.
We did not have chicago cubs jersers player-specific cleveland indians jersers plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that has been in the ownership process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared by us or approved by us. … Those are local decisions that really are not part of the approval process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared with us or approved chicago white sox jersers by us.
Manfred went on to say that he didn’t receive a payroll plan from the Marlins until two days prior to his interview miami marlins jersers with Le Batard. cleveland indians jersers More: We don’t get into, are you going to trade ‘Player X’ or ‘Player Y’ at a particular point in time, nor do we ask them to make st. louis cardinals jersers a commitment to people before they even got in and made an evaluation of their talent level, their ability to win with the people that they have. That’s just not how the ownership process works.

But some of that may not be true
Here’s a key excerpt from a must-read Barry Jackson piece in the Miami Herald:
A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, miami marlins jersers via text: Commissioner said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders.
Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter’s plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. Widely circulated.
First off, Project Wolverine is ludicrously self-important and sinister-sounding, as budget strategies go. That’s the name of a secret NSA laboratory deep under the Caballo Mountains in New Mexico, not a financial schematic. Do better, Jeets. Anyhow, there’s enough careful phrasing in Manfred’s comments (operating-level decisions, ‘Player X’ or ‘Player Y’) to give him some plausible deniability. However, the idea that he didn’t know about plans to engage in yet another demo job by Marlins owners strains credulity.
in the designing world, a consistent design is very important; it not only represents your brand value, but it also engages the user for a very long period of time. Consistent designs are valued in this industry, but that does not mean new designs won’t be getting any further chance.print spooler service not running
