The best book covers of January 2018


Pastry gives a lot of love to authors, but we also love to celebrate the book cover designers and illustrators whose work is jumping off the shelves. From Will Staehle’s intriguing perspective on The infinite future to the charming art of Nina Cosford for Meet cute, the 10 cover designs in this gallery are a feast for the eyes.

If you want to see even more gorgeous book covers, I recommend you visit both Spine review‘s and The occasional optimist websites. They’ve introduced me to most of my favorites this month, and you can get lost for hours looking at the artwork on each site.

* Rather than categorizing the covers, I ranked them in an aesthetic order.
