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!
What’s this? More Chris Riddell illustrations? WHY YES. I was lucky enough to snag the first three books of the Edge Chronicles (though from research it appears this is another series that has a few paths you can take for reading order) from a seller on IG. I may have trouble finding other editions in this style – I’m not even sure the whole series was published in these editions. I will be sad if my set doesn’t match. Ugh.
Anyway, this is by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell and also illustrated by Chris Riddell. Published in 2004 by David Fickling Books, ISBN: 0385750684.
