These are all SO bad that is doesn’t even seem worth ANY kind of commentary… but I have to say this much: computers have ruined design –or at least they made bad design horrific. As a former art director and someone who has taught design as well, the fact that it is possible for people with negative design skills to create what you see here is scary. Before computers, you really had to rely on a designer to create a book cover. People, like Chip Kidd got (deservedly) famous, conceptualizing typography, illustration and photography and raising the level of book cover design to a true art form. Now, as you can see ANYONE can and apparently does create book covers. But the two positive things I can tell about design this bad, it DOES warn you that what’s inside is very likely the literary equivalent. The other plus? They really ARE hilarious.
