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 lovely book was inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales. The Singing Bones is a collection of little stories and a corresponding sculpture for each by Shaun Tan, with a forward by Neil Gaiman. It was published in 2016 by Arthur A. LeviBooksoks, ISBN: 9780545946124.
