If you’re not meant to judge something by its cover then why do designers put so much time and effort into choosing the perfect font, composition and coloring? Book covers, movie posters and CD packaging are often representative of the effort put into the creation of the work itself. A lazy poster can sometimes mean I lazy movie.

Each week I will review up-coming movies, recently released books and CDs and evaluate/review them based entirely on the covers. I will try and include ones that I have absolutely no prior knowledge of, though in this media saturated world that could prove difficult sometimes!

I will also interview a designer of book jackets, movie posters, CD and magazine covers so gain some further insight into the process.

On occasion, when I have decided to watch the movie, listen to the CD or read the book, I will comment and re-evaluate whether my initial judgments were correct. It should be fun to do so I hope it will be fun to read!
