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 have purchased special editions of books, or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!
This is an ARC of Fluke that my friend spotted while I was on vacation and the cover art was so wonderful, I had to pick it up! I certainly like it more than the finalized cover art on the finished copy I own. Fluke was published in 2004 by HarperCollins, ISBN: 9780060566685. It’s not my favorite Moore novel, but it’s still very funny and imaginative.
And just for reference, here’s what my finished copy looks like:
