I’ve had book covers on the brain recently. I’ve been tasked with figuring out some things that might (or might not) work for my own cover. Because I’m much better at spotting (and explaining) what I hate than what I love, I’ve done a lot of looking around for terrible covers, in the hopes that I’ll be able to help the designers avoid these mistakes.
Once you’ve read the post about the book covers, please come back and cast your vote for the worst of the lot. And if you know of others, please point us to them.
