I believe Amazon is slowly rolling this design out (or still just testing it) so you might not see this yet.
I’ve attached a screen shot of Amazon’s new design from our book The Names of Things:
First off, the book covers are displayed about 20% larger, which I love.
Also, you can “flip to back” to see the back cover of the book. It’s a nifty bit of animation which can’t be captured with a screen grab. The book also appears to open up if you hover over the book cover — another nice interactive element. These are small details perhaps but I think they go a long way to creating a more “physical” bookstore experience.
Scrolling down the page, the new design highlights selected reviews as follows (from our book Float):
Overall, I like the update.
