Uncovering YA Covers
Starting with The Elevensies and this Goodreads list of 2011 YA releases, Michelle Andelman looked at 900+ covers, focusing only on US releases within the 2011 calendar year.* Originally, Michelle Andelman planned to count every self-published, indie, Big 6, or other book on the list... but somewhere in the 600s Michelle Andelman started losing my mind and decided to keep stats only on presses whose acquisitions are announced in Publisher's Marketplace. This still left her with 624 "traditionally published" books to count.
