Has anyone ever bought a book simply because they liked the artwork or the look of the cover? There is the saying ''Never judge a book by it's cover'' but i have been tempted to do just that on occasion. I believe that an attractive or intriguing cover can really help to sell a book rather than a bland or plain cover. The reputation of the author and advertising/promotion are what really sells the book but i think the appeal of the cover has a lot to do with it. There are several published titles that will always stick in my mind purely due to the cover even if i have never read them.
