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!
Back in June when I was on vacation, my friend Mel and I were shopping for books (duh) and we both spotted this one. Fortunately for me, I grabbed it first! Sadly, there was only one copy. Mel said she’d buy it if I didn’t want to but: 1) look at it; 2) it’s middle-grade; 3) LOOK AT IT. Sorry Melly.
This lovely book is written by Matt Harry (and Euphemia Whitmore) and illustrated by Juliane Crump, with interior design by Kevin Summers and cover design by M.S. Corley (whose copy of Half Way Home I wish I owned.) Published in 2017 by Inkshares, ISBN: 9781942645689.
