Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Chronicles of Narnia

Time for another edition of Judging a Book! We all judge cover art a little, even if it doesn’t necessarily sway us into buying or not buying a book. This week I’m showing off my Chronicles of Narnia set.

I have wanted to read this series for quite some time now (having only read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in middle school), but up until recently I only owned the omnibus edition which was just too bulky. A few years ago I tried to start the series from the beginning and became fed up with trying to lug the book around. Then I saw this beautiful cover art, and my search began.

These are 1994 editions put out by HarperTrophy/HarperCollins Publishers with cover art by Leo and Diane Dillon. They are amazing! I was especially captivated by the art for The Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and ended up buying my set off a seller on Etsy.

    I wish I had this set! I bought the combined version of them with a giant lion on the cover. Not half as nice as these ones.
