Book By Its Cover

Imagine if there was a New York Times Book Review that exclusively covered inspiring art and illustration books. Well, there is such a site and it’s called Book By Its Cover. The site has a broad focus, everything from children’s books to comics and hand-made books, and the selections are pure quality. There’s even a few animation books featured like The Art and Flair of Mary Blair and Cartoon Modern as well as books by animation artists like Seonna Hong. The blog is run by Julia Rothman, who is one of the principals in Also Design, the amazing design firm responsible for the redesign of Cartoon Brew.

    I like the concept of this site, but the author seems to be only interested in one aesthetic. While all the covers she chose are great, it’s a pretty limited scope in terms of what’s out there.
