11 Of The Most Beautiful Book Covers From 2012

Ebooks are convenient and all, but there’s nothing quite like an awesome, physical book cover to really get you stoked to dive into a old-school tome. The words inside are important, but there’s something to be said for a really nice piece of shelf-candy too.

Every year, the Design Observer and the American Institute of Graphic Arts whip up a list of the year’s best cover designs, and they just put out their 50 bestestest of 2012. Taste varies, but these are a few of our favourites.
