A book by its cover: God's own Country

Growing up in Northern Ireland, the title of this book has a strong resonance with me, even though it's not related to my homeland at all. Still, I think this is a fantastic cover. Having just worked for a publishing company, I very much suspect that this cover didn't do that well for the publisher in hardback, and that they have redesigned it for the paperback. I think it's a huge improvement. This is the perfect example of a book which I would buy just because of the cover art - very unusual for me.

Love the book cover. I like how they incorporated the penguin logo without it being intrusive on the art.
