This is my weekly post where I choose to appreciate a book for its cover art or overall design – to me, a well-designed book is like a piece of art. We all judge book covers to some extent. Personally, it’s usually a title/cover combination that pulls me in when I’m browsing in a bookstore. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books, or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers (looking at you, Penguin!) wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!
This is the fantastic Penguin Ink edition of Bridget Jones and I really wish they’d done the sequels in this style too because it’s adorable! I believe it’s from 2010 – ISBN: 9780143117131. I have a few other books from the Penguin Ink series and I love them.
