B&N Web Video Series

From Barnes & Noble STUDIO... Cover Story

Books as seen through the eyes of those who design them.

Have you ever wondered if the stories behind books' covers might be as interesting as the stories between them? If so, welcome to Cover Story. In this original mini-documentary series, we introduce you to the creative people who design and illustrate the books we love. From children's tales to science fiction and beyond, every cover tells a story.
