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 at an antique shop years and years ago, mostly because it was cheap and it had a purple spine. I don’t have any real plans to read it, though I may someday pick it up. The Little Lame Prince was written by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik and illustrated by Lucille Corcos and published by Grosset & Dunlap in 1948.
