Design Observer just announced the best book covers of 2012.
How do they pick these, you ask? Well, a 35-person advisory board nominates worthy books for consideration. Nominations are also open to the public in online voting. Design Observer's editors create a jury to judge the nominations and pick the 50 winning books.
The contest began in 1924.
Here are last year's, in case you're interested.
Here's this year's list. Are they missing any of your favorite covers? Let us know which ones in the comments!
