Inspiring book cover designs

When searching for items that would fit my Inspiration Stream I have been collecting a special collection that deserves a post on their own I think. I'm referring to a fine selection of book cover designs that I'll share with you after the jump.

Excellence in book cover design

The main purpose of this post is inspiration so I hope you'll enjoy my selection.
