We love a beautifully designed YA book cover and when you add a little animation -POOF- you have discovered our newest favorite thing. The Epic Reads designers have been hard at work making a lot of these GIF covers, so if you ever have any requests for covers you’d like to see animated, let us know in the comments!

 

PS- If the animations stop, try refreshing your browser!

    These are AMAZING. I think my favorite is The Bitter Kingdom, though I love Looking for Alaska’s, too!

    Thank you guys for sorta answering my question. But do they use photo shop to do these or is there some kind of program or generation? I heard you can edit gifs in Photoshop, and animate them, but I’m never tried. I’m a photoshop ninja on just about everything except that.

    It would be cool to see Black Out animated (with the yellow stuff exploding)
    Or the Divergent covers maybe.

      We use Photoshop but we can’t animate every cover. It all depends on the layering in Photoshop. The more layers we can use in Photoshop the easier it is to animate into a gif!

    I love the one for Looking For Alaska. One of the best books of all time!

  4. August 14, 2013 | 8:31 pm

    Wow these are really cool! Icons, Looking For Alaska, Reboot, My Soul to Steal and The Beginning of Everything are the best ones. :D

    These are amazing! So many wonderful covers!
    Days of Blood and Starlight would have to be my fave, as I LOVE this series. I would love to see Daughter of Smoke and Bone with animation (a little flutter to the feathers would look great).

    I think it would be cool to animate The Book Thief–maybe having the dominoes fall down?

    DO MOREEE <3

    So fabulous! I like that you used some UK covers too!

  9. November 18, 2013 | 9:33 pm

    These are all awesome. My favorites are Asylum and Life By Committee. :)

    Nice. I liked Reboot and Icons (that one was bright). I think you should do something the covers of the Icemark series by Stuart Hill. There are some monsters you can play with! :)

  11. November 19, 2013 | 5:12 pm

    Ohhh I love these! Please please please do one for Divergent! Or if you want to do a recent one, Allegiant? It’s the last book in the series <3

    NO ONE ELSE CAN HAVE YOU is so creeeepy! Loved loved loved the animation on THE BEGINNING OF FOREVER and THE END GAMES. BITTER KINGDOM is so pretty, and LOOKING FOR ALASKA is fun!

    Will these be covers we see if we have e-readers? Or just for fun? *love*

    Looking for Alaska!!! It’s so cool!!!
