Beautifully Wrapped Books

Dan Kraus just reminded me to take a look at the Book Design Review‘s Favorite Book Covers of 2008. I love this stuff. Seeing books that are physically beautiful is a great reminder that, no matter how handy a Kindle can be, e-books will never be as satisfying as a book made of paper–just as an MP3’s convenience will never inspire the same thrill as an LP.

Of course, I’m looking at these covers on my laptop. But I do have a couple of them on the shelf!
