Great Book Covers

Of course, I judge a book by its cover! Faced with a large table of books in a book shop, I alway grab the most striking book and, although I might not buy it, at least it has caught my attention and stands a chance. Over the past few years, I have noticed that publishers are spending more and more effort in producing visually stunning book covers, no doubt a push back against the e-book trend. A brilliant development, if you ask me. I will be collecting the best here, old and new. Send me your favourites.
