The real strength of the site lays in the cross-indexed meta data. Click on an author’s name and see any other books he or she has in the archive. Click on a designer’s name and see all work by that designer. More often than not, a single person will have multiple instances of meta data associated with his or her name.
This is a great resource for anyone interested in book covers and anyone interested in joining the conversation about books covers, since all entries are comment-able. Of particular interest is the science fiction section, which features gorgeous work from Michael Fusco for Penguin, Karen Horton for Orbit, Shepard Fairey for Penguin, Gregg Kulick for Harper Perennial, and many more. Enjoy.
