The Book Cover Club

Read a book, design a cover for it
Philip Cheaney's design for James Joyce's Dubliners [The Book Cover Club]
This August has witnessed the launch of The Book Cover Club, a new literary design blog. The idea is very simple: read a book, design a cover for it. The site is run by book illustrator Philip Cheaney, and so far has featured contributions from Ryan Hartley, Daniel Fishel, Cecilia Ruiz and Cheaney himself. Books have included James Joyce's Dubliners (above) and Herman Melville's Moby Dick. I'll look forward to seeing what crops up in the months to come. (Thanks to Jennifer Dawn Whitney for the link.)
