Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge

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!

Stay tuned for a review of this excellent book written by M.T. Anderson and illustrated by Eugene Yelchin. Apparently Yelchin’s illustrations were done in pen and ink and assembled digitally, which is cool. This was just published recently by Candlewick Press, ISBN: 9780763698225.

    • Definitely do! I’ll have a review for it up next week, but it’s great for kids and adults. It’s really clever and funny, but has a lot of meaning too. Plus it’s so beautifully designed!
