This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!
I really love owning these huge, glossy editions of my favorite (and only?) manga. I know I mentioned it before, but if you’re a big Sailor Moon fan, these are really worth it. As silly and dramatic and puzzling at this series is, I’m loving re-reading it all!
