Kill Baxter by Charlie Human with Cover Art by Joey Hi-Fi Makes Anne C Perry’s Best Book Covers of 2014

Kill BaxterH is for HawkStation ElevenWolves

Anne C Perry recently shared her list of the nine best book covers of 2014 on The Book Smugglers.

Perry is an editor at Hodder & Stoughton and the founder of Pornokitsch, Jurassic London, and The Kitschies.

According to Perry, a good book cover requires a clear vision and a clear brief, and she adds that book covers should be strong and arresting, while at the same time conveying the vision of the book.

One book that did just that, according to Perry, is Kill Baxter by Charlie Human, with cover art by Joey Hi-Fi.

Read the article:

Joey Hi-Fi’s covers are always wonderful and always unforgettable. I mean, there’s just no comparison; he reads the book before he starts work on the cover and incorporates elements from the story into the art. His work is youthful, energetic, and hip, and he could have no better canvas than his work than Human’s Harry Potter for the 21st century series. Which is itself wonderfully youthful, energetic and hip.
