Facts About Some of the World's Most Iconic Book Covers!

Hi everyone! We have something super exciting for you on the blog today. We teamed up with the awesome group over at Invaluable to share this really cool infographic with you, which we absolutely loved reading! We learned all about 18 of the world's most famous book covers and the stories behind it that we never knew before. So if you're interested in learning a little more about the secrets behind these book covers, keep reading!

Did you know that after seeing the cover art midway through writing The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald decided to incorporate it into the book’s plot? Pretty neat stuff! The process of designing a book cover is one that takes much consideration and collaboration between the designer and editors or publishing house. The vision of the cover is sometimes even decided upon two years before the date of publication. The best kinds are those that prompt us to pick up a book and buy it to read on the spot.

Invaluable created a neat infographic on some of the most iconic book covers and how each designer made their visions a reality. Browse through and see if your favorites made the list!


We'd like to thank the lovely team over at Invaluable for being awesome enough to reach out to us and offer to share their beautiful graphic so we could post it. There were so many interesting facts we've learned and will now be telling to all of our fellow bookworm friends! :-)
