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!
Don’t think you’ve seen the last of my ever-growing Alice collection! This is one of my favorites (if you can pick from a collection that’s made entirely of favorites) and it’s a fantastic pop-up book! This is a Little Simon edition from 2003, illustrated by Robert Sabuda. It is abridged, of course but it does a wonderful job of highlighting popular parts. ISBN: 9780689847431.
This is probably my favorite part…
It’s like falling down the rabbit hole!
