Judging A Book By Its Cover: Cinderellis

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’m a fan of Gail Carson Levine so when I found Cinderellis and the Glass Hill at the thrift shop for $2.99 I couldn’t resist. Published in 2000 by HarperCollins, illustrations by Mark Elliott, jacket design and typography by Michele Tupper, ISBN: 006028336x.

      • True! It’s funny how Ellis doesn’t much mind, though. His brothers ignore him, so he just goes about his business like it’s not such a big deal. It’s kind of sad, but also kind of funny that he’s doing all this stuff and no one notices!
