The Island at the End of the World Book Cover Design Contest

Cover design for Sam Taylor's The Island at the End of the World by Greg MatsonThis is a double whammy for me as I’m a sucker for well-designed book covers and post-apocalyptic fiction.

Penguin Books and Creativity have partnered to do a cover design contest for Sam Taylor’s forthcoming book, The Island at the End of the World. They solicited 300 cover designs, picked the top 25 and are sharing those online, and will pick the winner on Thursday. The winning design will be used when the book is published in 2009.

Perhaps I’m biased because it came up first, but I think the very first one is the very best one. It has a simple beauty to it. Love it. What do you think? (via kottke.org)
