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!
I saw this awesome pop-up book while I was on vacation with Sweetbeeps for our anniversary, but the shop wanted $25. That’s too much to pay for a used pop-up book, so I went home and found it on Amazon for $7. 😀 It was published by Harry N. Abrams Inc. in 2000, paper-engineering by Corina Fletcher and illustrations by David Roberts, Library of Congress #00102066.
