The 19 Best Book Covers of 2019

We like to insist otherwise, but we often judge books by their covers. The reality is that a striking cover can influence whether we’ll pick up a book or leave it on a shelf. So we want to celebrate the designers and illustrators whose gorgeous covers stopped us in our tracks, encouraging us to give those books a chance.

From Aykut Aydogdu’s haunting illustration for Wilder Girls to Nicole Caputo’s creative take on The Crying Book, the 19 designs below deliver our favorite book covers of the year. We also recommend visiting both Spine Magazine’s and The Casual Optimist’s websites, as they introduced us to many of our favorite designs in 2019.
