Judging A Book By Its Cover: Sherlock Holmes

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!

This week’s post is a little different, in that there’s nothing visually spectacular about these two editions – they’re just what I consider vintage. They’re from the late 1920s, published by Doubleday, and they have that lovely vintage aroma. So I just wanted to give them a moment in my little spotlight.
