Finished Book Series I Haven't Finished...YET

10 Books for Cover Design 101

Each week, The Broke and The Bookish hosts the Top Ten Tuesday meme. This week's prompt is "Ten Books that would be on your curriculum list if you taught X 101."

I chose to do my imaginary course on book cover design. Despite the old saying, EVERYONE judges a book by its cover. There are a few exceptions, but those are mostly classics which all basically have the same format when it comes to cover design (old painting + basic text). If you are producing a new book, having a great cover allows your book to promote itself as it sits on the shelf.
