Madrid Book Fair: Amazing Book Cover Designs (PHOTOS)

To celebrate the launch of El Huffington Post, our expansion into Spain (¡Felicidades herman@s!), we dropped in on the Feria del Libro, an annual public celebration of books in the beautiful El Retiro Park in the center of Madrid.

Hundreds of publishers, distributors, bookstores and authors filled stands in the park. While there, we snapped some pretty special book cover designs – the Spanish market seems to use stock photography and white space in a very different way to that of American publishers. When it works, it really works.

Take a look, and keep an eye out for a new angle on some famous books.
