Books and their Covers

One of my favorite covers of all time, and I'm lucky enough to have this first edition copy with its beautiful cover sitting on my shelf.

I know you’ve always been told to never judge a book by its cover, but some are just too beautiful, disturbing, or interesting to ignore, and after a few days of relatively non-stop reading, this afternoon I’ve decided to shift my focus from their text-filled pages to their oft warned about covers. Here are a few (out of many) websites and blogs devoted to the beauty we experience from books, before we even open them.
