They say never judge a book by its cover… but we all know we’d be lying if it didn’t help sway our opinion. Bridgeman has licensed images for some beautiful covers around the world over the past year. Take a look at some of our highlighted designs, not including the winners of our first ever Book Cover Design Awards 2017.
