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!
I’m getting married soon (!!!) and I’m using vintage books and handmade flowers for the centerpieces. I think all the books I picked out are worthy of a Judging post but I simply don’t have time for that right now, so here’s a little sample. I didn’t make note of what year any of these books are, but they’re pretty old and they smell wonderful.
