    Skwirl, you're back!

    I've always loved sci-fi/fantasy cover art pieces... often the cover alone would be enough to make me pick up a book. It seems like artwork for literature has the same problem as art work for albums, a lot of people don't really appreciate it.

    the artwork on a book is important in one way to me, it suggests thought and money has gone into a books selling power.

    however, i read the back and the inside to get a grasp of the storyline and thats how i decide whether to read a book! as i read so much usually i used to get a lot from the library and the hardback covers of the old school scifi books are frequently simply 3D letters which didn't put me off in the least.
