According to http://www.rockingbookcovers.com/, a leading book cover design firm Rocking Book Covers, publishers have different ideas about beauty of book covers but the most popular ones have following characteristics:

Deep: A beautiful book cover is so artistic and meaningful that the one who looks at it feels the emotions weaved in the design. The book cover will be no less than a painting with artistic thoughts in every stroke. It will tend to give a 3D effect. Reader will get drawn to it and will want to know more about the place, person or thing shown on the book cover.


Tempting: A beautiful book cover is usually not a straight forward piece of art. It is an introduction to the book. It quizzes the reader with an art symbolic of the book’s story. It is like a trailer to a movie. A beautiful book cover will entice the one looking at it and will tempt him to look inside.

Indicative: A book reader knows that he does not have to skim through every book in the library to make a selection. A regular reader can look at a book cover and judge its contents. A beautiful book cover is attractive enough for its specific target audience. For instance, a philosophical book will usually have an abstract art or a thought provoking quote.

Though it is not advisable, readers often judge a book by its cover. This makes publishers pay special attention to its design and meaning. A beautiful book cover will attract an onlooker and make him fall in love with it.
