Judging A Book By Its Cover: Inside the Villains

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!

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Ghoul School

This is my weekly post where I highlight and appreciate cover designs and the general physical appearance of books. We all judge book covers to some extent. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I do purchase special editions of books and multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!

Judging A Book By Its Cover: ABC3D

This is my weekly post where I choose to appreciate a book for its cover art or overall design – to me, a well-designed book is like a piece of art. We all judge book covers to some extent. Personally, it’s usually a title/cover combination that pulls me in when I’m browsing in a bookstore. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books, or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers (looking at you, Penguin!) wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!

Book Review: Celebrity Meltdowns

Even More Outrageous Celebrity Meltdowns: Pop-up Parodies of Your Favorite Stars
By: Heather Havrilesky

My Edition:
Hardcover, 20 pages
2007, Melcher Media
ISBN: 9781595910349

I actually have a small collection of pop-up books, so it’s a quirky edition.
