Check out these gorgeous book covers designed by Klas Ernflo that were rejected by a publisher. What were they thinking? These cover designs are stunning and I would buy the book just for it! There are other covers on the site that are great as well.

Beautiful! Some .. a lot… of people don’t know what they would have or what is in front of them 🙁 quite dis-heartening sometimes
The wine labels on the site are also beautiful. Like the book covers, simple but so attractive.
some people just can’t see
they look great but they don’t offer high level of communication.
They have the artists name on the cover. I’m not sure how much more you need to communicate.
Very simple and attractive. Artist name is enogh to me, to see what book is about. Van Gogh cover is so awsome I want to lick it 😉
HAHA! Jarek I agree. It looks yummy.
Editors…probably looking for a cinematographic take an image…BULL.
Agree about having the author’s name as the main informarmation piece. Perhaps a bit more interesting color system will make it more complicated for those that like that…
^ I don’t believe he is using Pistilli Roman, but it’s something quite close:
The tail of the capital R here is more ‘flowy’ than the pistilli one, and the bottom of the corner of the lowercase y sticks out. It could very well just be a little bit edited, though.
Really beautiful work, there. Wow.
It’s definitely not Pistilli. These serifs have hard corners, the serifs in Pistilli are rounded.
You are right, it’s a shame that those book covers have been rejected.
