My oldest friends will tell you, that I have always been a book worm. From Jacqueline Wilson's 'Tracy Beaker' when I was younger, to 'The Casual Vacancy' and any Nancy Mitford book now I'm a bit older and wiser. I am always nudging my man towards a good book and dragging him around our local bookshop, Borzoi Books in Stow on the Wold to no avail. 

Since being a designer, my love of books and good design have combined for a great admiration of book covers (it actually pains me to see someone with a Kindle). If you follow me on Instagram you will sometimes see my latest read propped up against the red paper bag from Borzoi or held up against the backdrop off my holiday destination. 

I have collected together some of my favourite book covers. If you would also like to share your appreciation for a beautiful book cover then Instagram it, and #alwaysjudgeabookbyitscover
