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 picked this up recently because of its shiny cover and because based on the title I had zero idea what this sci-fi book might be about. Turns out it’s environmental sci-fi and I’m excited. (EDIT: I read this at the end of June while I was on vacation and HATED it. Womp!)
It’s written by Claire Vaye Watkins, was published in 2016 by Riverhead Books with cover design by Rachel Willey (and inspired by Paul-Henri Schaedelin – Studio Fables) and book design and illustrations by Lauren Kolm, ISBN: 9781594634246.
