I like a good book. But I love a good book cover. Whether it's a best seller, new arrival, or totally obscure, we're compiling a list of cover art that makes us want to turn our office into a library. Here's 7 for this week.
As a former skateboarder and still avid fan of the sport I try to follow what's going on in that industry especially because, in my opinion, I believe they set a lot of trends in style. I have fond memories of the skateboarding magazines I used to collect in the 90s like Trasher and Transworld. When I saw the post that Tim Bisschop about a hand painted book cover for the "A Skateboarder's Journal" I knew I had to post about it. Tim was also super cool to share a bit of how he did that. It seems simple but the result is like the essence of skateboarding. It's all about the style and simplicity.
