Book Covers


If you follow me on Pinterest, you would have seen I have been looking at tons of book covers lately. I am one of those people who tends to judge a book by its cover a little bit. Of course, I still read books with covers that aren’t extremely awesome looking, but for the most part, I pick up books when their cover (or spine) attracts my attention.

The New York Times, 36 Hours: 125 Weekends in Europe

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald


The Abstract City by Christoph Nielmann

George Orwell, 1984 (book cover by Olle Eksell, 1959)


Is it a coincidence that most of these are vintage?
