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!
A while back (probably longer than I care to admit) I purchased Vango primarily because of the beautiful cover art, though I am interested in the story. Then, I realized it had a sequel, so I bought that too! Hi, hello, yes, I haven’t read either, and probably won’t for some time. Regardless! They’re a beautiful pair!
