Judging A Book By Its Cover: Sherlock Holmes (V)

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 bought The Memoirs and Return of Sherlock while on vacation in Florida. I’ve never seen any of the Arcturus editions in person before and I fell in love with the bold colors and simple design. (You know I’m totally jonesing for the Pride & Prejudice edition from these guys, but haven’t found it yet!) Both were published in 2017 with cover designs by Peter Ridley. Memoirs has interior illustrations by Sidney Paget. Memoirs ISBN: 9781785996115, Return ISBN: 9781785999277.
