Nearly three hundred covers are shown in this well designed and printed book, none of them are angled or overlap other covers. These blurbs help clarify the subject the artist was trying to convey, which is sometimes fun to figure out.

I had great expectations from this book, but wasn't too impressed with it eventually. It has some good examples of cover design, but I would've like a good deal more of contemporary book cover design, which it doesn't have. Overall, the truth be said, I am not a great, accomplished designer, but my intention in buying this book was to nudge me along the way to becoming one, and in that regard, I didn't get much out of it.
