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!
Found this edition while browsing a Books-A-Million on vacation in Flordia. No way was I leaving without it! Published in 2017, it’s a Worth Press Signature Classics. Cover design by Jess Moon and illustrations colored by Barbara Frith. ISBN: 9781849311328.
