Loving ... Shawn Hazen's Bookworship

I love well designed book covers ... and particularly love it when I stumble across a site dedicated to showcasing the very best covers. Its like having the books but without the grief that comes from the SO when you buy them.

bookworship is one such site ... and what a site it is!

I've added a few faves that stand out ... including a mandatory Pelican classic.

If you like a well designed book cover then I would highly recommend checking out bookworship.

Shawn Hazen, the graphic designer behind the project, explains his rationale in the 'about' section:
"This site represents the obsessions of an atypical book collector. While I certainly love “valuable” books, that’s not necessarily what you’ll see here. For the most part, these are graphically interesting, but otherwise uncollectible, books that entered and exited bookstores quietly in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. I read a lot of these books, but my motivations for posting them here are primarily visual, since I’m a graphic designer. That’s why it’ll be a bit of a mixed bag."
I like your mixed bag Shawn ... thank you for sharing these books!
