“Book Covers That Got Away”

Check out this gallery published on The New York Times’ Sunday Book Review called Book Covers that Got Away. “Designers can generate as many as 50 covers for high-profile books … Below are some killed covers whose creators couldn’t quite let them rest in peace.”

This reminds me of a project sponsored by HOW last year, Project Never, featuring gorgeous design work that (for whatever reason), never made it to production. Read more about the 2010 winner of the Project Never contest here.
