One of the enduring shortcomings of my end of year covers list is its failure to represent designers from the non-English-speaking world. Having interviewed Spanish designer Ferran López Creative Director for Editorial Planeta (and previously a designer at Random House Mondadori) a few years ago, I’m particularly aware of how much amazing work is being done in Spain and how little of it gets featured here. Fortunately at Unpopular Culture, the blog of Madrid-based independent publisher Pop Editions, Óscar Palmer has selected his 12 favourite book covers of the year. It’s a good-looking list!
