We’re back to judging books by their covers, and the results are glorious. From Will Staehle’s neon take on Blackfish City to Na Kim’s stunning interpretation of Things That Helped, the 10 book covers in this gallery deliver some of April’s best designs. Browse our top picks, and enjoy celebrating the designers and illustrators whose work leaps from the shelves.
If you want to view even more gorgeous book covers, you can check out our gallery of the best covers of 2017. We also recommend visiting both Spine Magazine’s and The Casual Optimist’s websites, as they introduced us to many of our favorite designs this month.
*Rather than rank the covers, we listed them in an aesthetically pleasing order.
