13 Beautiful Book Covers That Will Convince You To Buy All These Spring Releases


They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes it’s hard not to, especially when they’re as beautifully designed as some of this year’s Spring titles. If you are looking for books that are as amazing on the outside as they are on the inside, then don’t worry because you are spoiled for choice.

Like the books themselves, jacket designs tend to follow certain trends. In some years, the emphasis is on general themes such as water or flowers; other times the “it” look is more stylistic, like hand-drawn covers or retro patterns. Trends are always changing, always evolving and, it seems, are getting more and more mind-boggling.

This year, the publishers are offering covers with bright illustrated flowers, unique typography, and lots of birds, both drawn and photographed. There are also a lot of jackets covered in bright colors and, as always, a lot of black and white. When it comes to title design, this year’s books are leaning towards bold but minimalist fonts, and I personally can’t get enough of them.

Whether you’re looking for your next read or looking for the perfect title to display on your coffee table, here are 13 beautifully designed spring books that you can certainly judge by their cover.
