The Ten Best Book Covers Of The ’00s

Book Faces, Fonts in Use | Yves Peters | November 24, 2009

The end of the year is nearing fast – heck, Christmas Eve is exactly one month away! – and ’tis the time of the season for the customary lists. What’s more, as this is 2009 we’re bound to find some “Best of The Decade” overviews as well. Normally I am not so hot about lists and overviews, but if I can use it as an excuse to spotlight our friends at The Book Cover Archive I’ll gladly take it. Last week they published their Top Ten of Covers of the ’00s.

Personally I am very happy that the cover for the paperback collection of Chris Ware‘s gorgeous Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth made the cut. He is one of my favourite comic book artists, and his design work and hand lettering are astounding. See the complete list for the other winners and the ten runners-up.
