Paste gives a lot of love to authors, but we also enjoy celebrating the book cover designers and illustrators whose work jumps off the shelves. From Will Staehle’s intriguing take on The Infinite Future to Nina Cosford’s charming art for Meet Cute, the 10 cover designs in this gallery deliver stunning eye candy.
If you want to view even more gorgeous book covers, I recommend visiting both Spine Magazine’s and The Casual Optimist’s websites. They introduced me to most of my favorites this month, and you can get lost for hours viewing art at each site.
*Rather than rank the covers, I listed them in an aesthetically pleasing order.
