  1. Thanks everyone! Me too, a few of these books are tempting to buy just because of the covers. I know people shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but that’s hard to do being in the design industry! 😉

  2. Interesting to see the high percentage of male authors in the selections. I expect this is not particularly a function of the works themselves, but of the predisposition of the designers to associate minimalism with masculinity.

  3. This is a great selection, all so beautifully simple. I wish that it wasn’t a blatant ad for buying books on Amazon though. Can’t we see anything book related on the internet and not have it be linked to Amazon?

  4. nice round-up. but would be better with the credits for designers included. think most of these should be readily available online—recognize most.

  5. Hello Callum and thank you for your blog and for assembling these minimalist covers!!! I’ve been collecting covers I like for a while now to reference for clients. You’ve added to my list. Particularly struck by the MORAL RELATIVISM cover as well as the original thoughts behind COLUMBINE, SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS, and FLYING LEAP. GARDEN STATE interesting as well. If you have yet to discover http://www.lauraklynstra.com do take yourself there, covers that are art work in another way…… Many blessings, Wendy Jane Carrel

  6. I really like the last book cover concept for Patricia Morrisroe’s memoir on insomnia, Wide Awake. A clock outlining the book (and it’s in yellow…, my favorite color as of late, like my car). Having just done a memoir of my own, this was nice to come across. Great, no brilliant, work. Applause to the designer (was it the author herself?)!
