Incredible Covers: Winter Is For Snow by Robert Neubecker

Bow WOW! That’s an INCREDIBLE COVER!

Bow WOW! That’s an INCREDIBLE COVER!

We’ve all heard the old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover”, and that’s good advice, but there’s no denying that it is often the cover that grabs our attention first. That’s why it’s important to have a great cover and nowhere in the publishing industry is this more true than in the realm of picture books. The cover represents the book and it needs to say, “Hey, look at me.” The cover makes a promise to the reader: Inside you will find something magical.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an Incredible Covers feature. And today seemed like a good day to do one. I’m not a design expert or an illustrator, but once in a while, a cover really wows me. And I want to share it with everyone and attempt to explain why I think it’s incredible. Looking at a picture of the cover is not even close to seeing how wonderful it is in person, but I hope you can visualize at least a little bit of what I’ve described in the beautiful cover below.
