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!
This little Alice comic is incredibly adorable and I’m glad to have it in my collection. It was released in 2010 by PublishingWorks and is illustrated by Jamison Odone, as part of the Stickfiguratively Speaking series. However, I haven’t found any other books in this series, which is a shame because I would love to have more classics done in this style. ISBN: 9781935557616.
