One last look at 2012.
I firmly believe that "you can tell a lot about a book by its cover," so here are my favorite dozen book covers from the 134 books I read during the past year:
What I love about these covers is that all of them, without exception, perfectly capture the tone of what's inside. Plus, they all eye-catchers and some of them, I think, cross the line into art. I am willing to bet that these covers actually sold a significant number of books for these authors, too.
