Judging A Book By Its Cover: Sherlock Holmes (IV)

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 love the Barnes & Noble leatherbound classics – especially this other line they put out that runs about $10. Can’t beat that price! So, of course I snatched up this Sherlock Holmes edition, with its gilded edges and ribbon bookmark. Published in 2014, ISBN 9781435148109.
