Every month, Joel Friedlander, aka The Book Designer, invites authors to submit their books for his “Ebook Cover Design Award“.
And this month’s winners are…
Damonza submitted Beasts of the Walking City designed by Damonza and written by Del Law.
JF: Once again the talented Damonza, a previous winner for nonfiction, shows how to combine all the elements of a cover into a cohesive and striking whole. We get intimations of the story, atmospherics, a good deal of menace and some customized typography that helps to bring the whole thing together.
Alicia Morga submitted Create iPhone Apps That Rock: A Guide for Non-Technical Folks, written by Alicia and designed by Kyle T. Webster.
JF: Man oh man, when it all comes together it really works. Here the talented illustrator and designer Kyle T. Webster hits it out of the park by really capturing the fun and excitement and hypnotic attachment we have with our smartphones. Powerful graphics and a constant focus on the task of the book cover clearly set this one apart.
Also look for fantastic covers this month from Kit Foster, Becky Chilcott, Claudia McKinney, Derek Murphy, Wilette Youkey and Cathy Helms.
