YA Book Cover Blog

Here's a new blog well worth adding to your feeds: Jacket Whys. The blog's "about" page sums it up nicely:

"I am a librarian and former graphic designer who enjoys “The Book Design Review,” a blog by Jack Sullivan. I’ve subscribed to for a several months and always look forward to new posts. I wished there was a similar blog for those of us who focus on children’s and young adult books. It occurred to me that I could write one myself - so here it is."

I'm a Book Design Review fan, too, so I'm really happy to see a blog with similar goals focusing on YA.

Pretty fascinating when seeing the covers side by side.

As a designer and writer, I take an interest in these things, too. I noted the "Girls in Jeans" trend here at Flux in a blog comment a couple of weeks (month?) back. I think I was noticing the behinds and hands trend of the two books that Jacket Whys shows.

Still - good books and covers. Just a trend. You always want to be aware of them.

great idea! I just wished you had some follow buttons. :-( But I will try to remember to check back.
