#7 buzzfeed Thirteen ways of Looking

There are days when all the things I love the most converge in my editorial life, and last week—New York Fashion Week–I had one of them. My designer colleague Emily Harris forwarded an inspiring BuzzFeed link that illustrates the magnificent ways in which haute couture and haute book design inform each other. Book covers are powerful influences on consumer behavior, and in similar fashion, clothes can give a sense of the person who wears them. The BuzzFeed approach touched on an intriguing pairing of aesthetic concerns.

Number 7 (above) is totally me, though I reserve #1 and #4 as backups. See which book covers and fashion designs speak to you. And challenge your readers to see if they can make links between pop culture influences and the cover designs of the books they love. Share what you discover with us!
