The premise of Lousy Book Covers is simple. “Just because you CAN design your own book cover doesn’t mean you SHOULD,” a point the Tumblr has been making October 2011, when Nathan Shumate posted the blog’s first ghastly cover, Untied Shoelaces of the Mind Anthology, showing what appears to be a peacock made of spaghetti becoming one with a human face. It’s glorious, it’s awful, it’s beautiful, it’s horrific.
It makes us glad Lousy Book Covers exists. Here are some of our other favorites.
