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 do purchase special editions of books and 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 is a fun pop-up book that a friend picked up for me because I have a little collection going. This is a little mystery by Dial Books, published in 1991. It’s designed by Keith Moseley and illustrated by Linda Birkinshaw, ISBN: 0803710216.
