Fwis, the great team that also made the cut+paste pinhole cameras, has a great blog about book covers. Covers are posted and people post their thoughts and opinions about the design. It's also a special feature at Publisher's Weekly. I know that Julia Rothman's fantastic blog, Book By Its Cover, has a great section about children's book covers. Does anyone out there know of any blogs specifically dedicated to children's book cover design?
