The cover of a book is at work long after it catches your eye from a book shelf. It’s at work when you put it down on your bedside table, or stand holding it on a crowded subway car. It extends the story after you turn the last page: when you come to the end of a book you wished would never end, and stare at the cover art as if that was where you’d find more.
These covers are completely magical and unforgettable.
