This video features some of the book covers I have designed over the years. The music comes from a bonus track on Paul McCartney's Memory Almost Full album from 2007. It's an instrumental track called In Private. I must like it, because it's the 2nd most played song according to my computer's "Top 25 Most Played Songs." I hope you enjoy the video!
I think you're going to like this one. You get to look at some of what I consider to be the best classic (and most iconic) book cover design from over the past years, while listening to Bach's Arioso Sinforia from Cantata #156 (1720).
More book cover design from this studio. The song is The Beach Boys' Let's Go Away for Awhile, performed in concert by Brian Wilson and his band at The Roxy Theatre in California in the year 2000. From the famous Beach Boys album Pet Sounds, it is unparalleled in mood. Once asked what makes this song so special, Brian replied, "Try to hum it!"
If you're going to design a book cover, you will most likely need a photograph or an illustration. Just for fun, this video showcases some of the finest illustrators through the years, all of whom I am a big fan, and some of whom I have even met! It's set to the tune of Amy Grant's Do You Remember the Time, which features Stevie Wonder and Vince Gill. I hope you enjoy this video slideshow.
