30 Novels Worth Buying For the Cover Alone

Often, a beautiful cover is what draws us in, but for every author name we know - Aldous Huxley, Barbara Kingsolver, Chuck Palahniuk - there is a brilliant designer - Gregg Kulick, Elliott Beard, Michael Collica - whose name can go largely unrecognized outside the design community. In appreciation of these unsung heroes and the beauty they bring us, here are 30 of my favorite fiction covers.
