Covered Up Blog

Where you will find interviews, company news, and more

Where oh where has the covers.fwis blog gone?

Once a flourishing blog visited by book cover fans and book cover designers alike, the covers.fwis blog has come to a screeching halt. With it’s last post over four months ago, there seems to be no logical explanation to the lack of posts. The site had once featured a regular, tasty roster of the best book cover design work along with some great string of comments by visitors and the designers of the covers themselves. Now the site sits for months, stuck on one last, but great cover: Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, designed by Gray318. The site offers no excuse as to it’s sudden demise. One thing stands true, in it’s heyday, it was the most frequented site for great examples of great book cover design work. Today, it still stands to offer up that tasty selection. I personally will miss it. The covers featured were often carefully selected and presented with insightful commentary by the FWIS team. While we do currently have alternative archive sites out there to titillate us in our appreciation of book cover design, I will always miss the feverish, fanatical and overt discussions, comments and posts. Never a dull moment.
