It is very cold, wet and wintry in Toronto today, so here’s some book design related eye-candy to cheer you (me!) up…

Company of Liars by Karen Maitland

Favourite Book Covers of 2008: Joseph Sullivan has published his annual list at the excellent The Book Design Review (BDR). If your new to the BDR make sure you also check out his archived favourites for 2007, 2006, and 2005!

Funnily enough, Fwis’ Covers website has just posted The Microscope and the Eye (pictured) designed by Isaac Tobin who also did the amazing cover for Obsession which is in the BDR list for 2008.

Jacket Mechanical: A nice design blog featuring great book cover designs. Lots of super-cool modernism if you like that sort of thing (which I do).

Speaking of modernism, take a look at Mid-Century Children’s Books a gorgeous retro Flickr set by The Ward-O-Matic (AKA Ward Jenkins).
