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!
Furthermore didn’t capture my interest, but it did capture my eye. It was published in 2016 by Dutton Children’s Books, ISBN: 9781101994764. The cover design is done by Theresa Evangelista and the illustrations by Iacopo Bruno (ugh, his illustrations are fucking gorgeous and I want a copy of every book he’s had a hand it).
