A Collection of 15 Gorgeous Baha’i Book Covers

Book covers are a much loved graphic design medium. In fact designers regularly share galleries of gorgeous cover designs at sites like the Book Cover Archive and Beautiful Book Covers. We set out to find a collection of Baha’i books whose use of type, space, image and colour caught our eyes. As the saying goes, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when they look this good – just go ahead and do it!

  1. My first exposure to this site — one of the ‘missing links’ I’ve been hoping to discover some day. – Today is that day!
    fyi, under the book cover, you misspelled Covenant…
    The Convenant and You by John Kolstoe.
    I’ll be spending an inordinate amount of time exploring this…
    thanks in advance!
