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 lovely little Nightmare Before Christmas book is the 25th-anniversary edition, both written and illustrated by Tim Burton. It’s a poem about Jack discovering Christmas, and it comes with an animated reading by Christopher Lee. Published by Disney Press, ISBN: 9781484722022.
