Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Binding, Vengeance Road, and Hoodoo

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!) so 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!

Hello. I’m bringing you three more recent acquisitions today, none of which I’ve read yet. I can probably stop saying that, as most of you should be used to the fact that I own many unread books.

The Binding, written by Bridget Collins, has cover illustrations by Bilwissedition Ltd and Co. KG, and was published in 2020 by William Morrow, ISBN: 9780062838100.

Vengeance Road, written by Erin Bowman, has a cover illustration by Teagan White, and was published in 2015 by HMH, ISBN: 9780544938403.

Hoodoo was written by Ronald L. Smith and has cover illustrations by Sebastian Skrobol and cover design by Lisa Vega, and was published in 2015 by HMH, ISBN: 9780544935617.

Me, just taking in 2020.

  1. I certainly judge books on their covers — its the first impression you get when seeing a book. These books have wonderful illustrations on the covers and in the text. Especially Vengeance Road, with its intricate illustration and fantastic typeface. Beautiful!
