New Cover: Re-Conceptualized Book Covers by Matt Roeser

Matt Roeser, a graphic designer from St. Louis, loves reading and designing. The perfect combination for him would, of course, be designing book covers.

Currently he is part of the creative team at Atomicdust, but he would love to see some of his work published on the published word. So, he began a personal project, New Cover, a blog where he shares his redesigns of books he reads.

I've been seeing a lot of fan work over the past year, from the type-based film posters at 37 Posters, to illustrated film poster redesigns from Alamo Drafthouse, and the beautiful and interactive Jules Verne covers by Jim Tierne, and I'm always impressed how talented designers look past what exists, even if it works, and create something beautiful and oftentimes better.
