The Book Design Review

...what would you say is the best book design of the year? 
 Pictured two options among many.

Whatever you think BDR is seriously cool and the kind of blog I love to read. It's about books. It's about design. Brilliant!

  1. Oooo I'm so glad you pointed out that blog. Great book covers are amazing things.

    It's going on my feed.

  2. I'm always into good book covers! That's why it was hard for me to start reading Banner of Truth books. Their front covers are designed on Word 97 by an 8 year old.

    I'm a real big fan of Death by Love's artwork. I think that would win my prize.

  3. On the Christian book front I think Death by Love is one of the best efforts I've seen this year.

    I'd love to see Christian publishers be a bit more innovative and creative - we of all people have reason to be creative. We have the best words, be good to have the best design too.

  4. Some of the early ones on that page aren't that great imo, though there are some good ones lower down the page.

    That may reflect my love for type, like my supscription to the ampersand blog does.

  5. The ampersand blog is cool if a little repetitive. Photoblogging is great - it's why I love the Funky Pancake.
