Cover design - Daniel Gray

In another life I'm a book designer. Then again in another life I wouldn't have spent 14 years as a Marketing Manager before retraining as a designer. A different sliding door. There's something about book cover design that I find beautiful and refined. It offers you a window into another world, the world you're about to read on standing up on the tube, sitting on the bus or quietly finding a moment to yourself in a cafe with your coffee.

Daniel Gray's book cover work is quite wonderful. The images and ideas he brings to life appeal to my visual aesthetic. I could lay them all out on the floor and slowly run my eye across them. His blog is also ace as he works through his thought process. Check it out.
