As mentioned previously on this blog, I have a little obsession with book-jacket design and just how awful they can be. Do I judge? Certainly! The designer. Sometimes however they are great, fabulous and wonderful and in news just to hand rewarded for fabulous design. Jasper Jones (small format) has just received a design award for it's great cover. YES! YES! YES! There needs to be more celebration and acknowledgement of good design in the world. This, and only this might ensure that we are not forced to endure headless figures in period costume for any historical fiction novel that has a female protagonist.
