Book Covers Before and After Text

The cool thing about book covers is that they're made to work together with text, but they also stand on their own. I find it really interesting to see what book cover illustrations look like both with and without text. Here are some great examples from some insanely talented illustrators.

  1. after long break, when i visit blogs and realize that people like you are in the continuous process of creating wonderful and inspiring art, i feel great and guilty that i were missing the beauty of art all these days....

  2. These are indeed beautifully illustrated and well designed! Unfortunately, some people still underestimate the power of a great book cover and just throw on any old thing. I've passed some in local book stores that are just plain terrible.

    Not to mention I'm battling a design here myself. XD Thanks for the shot in the inspiration arm!

  3. I just wanted to say that I lovelovelovelove Jason Chan's work. Seriously.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I read each and every one!
