I just started James S. A. Cory's space opera, The Expanse. The first book is Leviathan Wakes. My local bookstore didn't have it in stock, so they had to order one. The Syfy channel is making a tv series, so they made an awful new cover.
My entry for the #minimalismcontest (even though I can't really enter) is a new cover. All of the past covers focus on extremely bold type, kerned to touch, on a background image. I took the opposite approach to keep mine minimal. The type is set in Haas Neue Grotesk 25 Extra Thin (with the beautiful alternate, straight leg R). The rules are comprised on small dots, hinting at the celestial nature of the book's setting. The fading typography is also a nod to the sense of the infinite.
