Half jacket over a printed case
This concept is clear and effective. The cover draws the viewer in and helps them experience something of the meaning of the content by engaging in an act of unveiling something hidden.
Great execution and designer made publisher and editor happy by repeating title in small letters above subtitle! Simple but so clever, really works for the book…when I see a design like this it always makes me smile and think, I wish I had thought of that!
The execution of the dust jacket belly band to obscure part of the title is ingenious. Impactful and very clean cover that has a strong conception in its execution.
Taking simple designs and making them work beautifully together. Having the wrap sit where it does so part of Beneath is seen but unseen. Clever. And I love clever.
