The Art of Book Jacket Design

Article from this Sunday's Book World.
Can you judge a book by its cover? Yes, say Frank and Eve Metz. And not only by its cover, but by its back, its boards, its title page, its contents page, its chapter openings, its typographical design. So much work goes into the physical aspect of a book -- the art and display of it -- that it is safe to say that a reader is getting as many messages from the artifact as from the themes inside.
