Judge a Book by it's Cover

In July 2014, we gave listeners the opportunity to win a copy of Dave Urwin's wonderful book - Everything Will Work Out in the Long Run because we are kind.

All we asked for in return was for some photographs of listener's favourite book covers and below are the splendid entries we received.

 

All hail the book cover.

 

The winner was Mark Brunt for his favourite cover, 'My Story' but it could have gone to any of these. To hear the podcast of the show where we dissect these covers, head here.
