A good book stays with you. We think about it throughout our day; while we eat, while we drive, or while at the gym. We feel compelled to vent, rant, and rave about it to people close to us - regardless if they are wanting to hear about it. A good book shapes how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. But a good book's appeal isn't just about its story and prose. A book's cover can be affecting as well, as it is part of the experience. After all, coverart is the first thing about a book we see. An iconic cover can draw us in and filter how we digest a book. Once a book is finished, the art isn't just an eye catching image meant to entice. Instead, the cover represents the memory of reading that book. They become like family photos - a snapshot of fond memories held that remind us of adventures, heartbreaks, and everything in between.
