2020 Winner.

I love the feel of this cover as we look into the lady’s mind and search for? what? It offers a great example of how a centered picture can be made to work in the right context. Mostly, this works because of its amazing colors and it’s visceral and deep meaning—and we assume the stories are too. This is visual storytelling.

We’ve looked at so many books over the years, I think I can tell the ones that work from those that don’t.
The 4 main criteria we will be looking at (Books Published in 2021):
1) Impact, or stopping power.
2) Portray the tone & genre of the book accurately.
3) Suitability to a selling environment.
4) Quality of typography and photograph.
So thank you all who entered last year & the best of luck to everyone in 2021 😀



Reading books is not only something I love, it is also my passion. When I’m not blogging, I work for a firm that does strategic marketing and crisis management – So I know a little something about the importance of a good picture and staying organised. It pays for every author to have a book cover that grabs the interest of those looking for some new reading material. A lot of readers will purchase on impulse, so a great cover has to pack a punch! So why not enter your book into the: Cassie’s Cover of the Year 2020 



Book Covers

Let’s face it, if people didn’t actually “judge books by their covers” there would be a lot of graphic designers out of a job. Like an album cover, a book cover is a crucial element of the reading experience.

A book cover is the first thing you see when determining whether or not to pick up a book. One of my favourite Facebook groups is Just Great Books where people can, and do, post some great covers. My Blog has some of the best book covers around 😀

Hope you enjoy
