This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent – I created this feature to highlight and appreciate the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many wonderful editions!
I’m slowing building my Penguin alphabet with cover art by Jessica Hische! These editions are too nice (and get dirty too easily) to read, but boy do they look great together. Someday I’ll own them all damnit! Today I have for you: Lord of the Flies by William Golding, published in 2013, ISBN: 9780143124290. Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, published in 2013, ISBN: 9780143124337. An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro, published in 2013, ISBN: 9780143124283.
