W&D Loves: From Cover to Cover

Lifestyle

I tip my hat to book cover designers. It’s not an easy task. In my opinion, it requires the designer to strike the perfect balance between conceptually intriguing visuals and clearly communicated information, while considering the author’s vision and intent.

So you can imagine the fit I threw over this killer project by designer Jenny Volvovski called From Cover to Cover. After completing a novel, Jenny illustrates and designs book covers based on her interpretation. The covers are loosely unified by color and style, but each is a uniquely beautiful, singular expression of the novel. And cue designer hard on.

Well done, Jenny!

    What a fantastic project. Props to her interpretation and then execution of the titles. I would love to have these as prints in a library, or let’s be honest, any room.

    These are so beautiful! And of the books here I’m familiar with, I much prefer these illustrations to the actual covers.

    You should check out Gabriele Wilson’s work. She was my professor of book cover design a couple years back at Parsons and she is truly inspiring!

    Truly agree with this. Cover designers are brilliant people because sometimes I really judge the book by its cover, literally. πŸ˜€
