Picture those most iconic of biographies and memoirs — Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs, with its Apple-aesthetic-inspired cover. Michelle Obama’s Becoming, with its beaming optimism. Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking, with its spare and minimal cover.
These works are classics because of the stories they tell, but their cover designs are also important in sustaining their reputation, and serve as a way to get readers to trust in the books and buy them.
