This is my weekly post where I highlight and appreciate cover designs and the general physical appearance of books. We all judge book covers to some extent. 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 wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!
The Wildwood series – middle-grade fantasy with utterly fantastic illustrations, both black and white and color, maps, deckle edges and fabulous covers. I’m in! I do need to read the third book still…but that’s beside the point. These books are lovely to behold. Wildwood, 2012, ISBN: 9780062024701. Under Wildwood, 2013, ISBN: 9780062024732. Wildwood Imperium, 2015, ISBN: 9780062024763. I took a ton of pictures, so enjoy!
