Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Starlit Wood

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!

This lovely collection was gifted to me for my birthday. I appreciate the detail in the cover that gives it the look of an old, hand-tooled leather book. The only thing I don’t like is the stupid short cover. I don’t understand why some books are designed this way. Just let the damn cover go all the way to the edge! Ugh. Anyway – I was delighted to find there are little illustrated details throughout the book, with a theme for each story.

It was published in 2016 by Saga Press with a cover illustration by Benjamin Carre and interior illustrations by Stella Bjorg Bjorgvinsdottir, ISBN: 9781481456135.

  1. Lol on the short cover.
    I really want to get that too. I was going back n forth on it because I loved the cover but wasn’t sure if I’d like the stories, but an in-depth review I saw on booktube convinced me that I might. They all sound interesting.
