Judging A Book By Its Cover: Alice in Wonderland (VIII)

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!

Sorry to spam you with another Alice edition so soon, but I’m still dealing with moving and haven’t had time to take new pictures. So here’s another Penguin clothbound edition, which I know we all love. I need (yes, need) to acquire the matching Jabberwocky edition soon. This is from 2010, ISBN: 9780141192468.
