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.
