The New York Times has posted their Favorite Book Cover Designs of 2012. They “asked people in and around the world of graphic design to name one of their favorite book covers from 2012 and briefly describe its appeal. The results follow.” Where I don’t agree with all of them, it was interesting to read the takes of various designers who are in the book industry. For example, the first listing is just god awful. But, one of my favorite designs of the year was included: Ben Marcus’ The Flame Alphabet. In person, the cover design really stands out and makes you want to pick it up and touch every part of the book. Have any favorites?
