30 Covers 30 Days

17 Nov 2010

30 Covers 30 Days is a project of The Office of Letters and Light, that started last year. 'm sure you are all familiar with the phrase “Don't judge a book by its cover". I'm sure most of us do it. A great cover can make you buy an otherwise average book, and a terrible cover can stop you from getting a terrific book.

30 Covers, 30 Days, how does it work?

Office of Letters and Light chooses 30 participant authors to receive covers by their design dream team. Each superstar designer on their team will receive a title and plot synopsis for a planned NaNoWriMo novel or novel-in-progress. He or she will have just 24 hours to create a book cover to accompany the title. They will post one of the book cover designs on their blog each day of November. (more about how it works)

    Just to be clear I didn’t design these. I’m only showcasing the covers that caught my eye. They are done by other designers. There is a link in the article to the complete list of people who will create a book cover.
