因為「封面」而買書?!這樣的經驗一定曾經出現在你或身邊的家人朋友們身上吧~可見,「封面」之於「書本」來說是多麼重要的一件事!

今年,紐約書評周刊的藝術總監 ​​Matt Dorfman 特選出了 12 本最令他欣賞的書封設計,而對成日與書本相處的他而言,他認為一本好的封面設計不僅能為書籍帶來加分的效果,更能夠因此開啟大家對於書籍的興趣,而在內容與設計間取得洽當的平衡並不容易,且要讓人在書目叢林中一眼就能引起閱書人停下目光,深怕因此而錯過的設計更是難得!

以下 12 本正是 2015 Matt Dorfman 所特選出來的書籍,大家可以仔細欣賞一番,那在看似平凡當中所悄悄於隱藏在其中的細節與令人想開啟一段閱讀時光的設計們。
