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!
More Tanith! As you all know, I’m wild about the Daw reprints that started coming out last year (no, I’m not sponsored, just obsessed) and as I collect them, I’m featuring their vintage counterparts. So today I bring you the Wars of Vis trilogy!
