Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Alice in Wonderland (X)

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!

It’s that time again – where you wonder just how many copies of the same damn book I have! This is my latest addition to my Alice hoard and I couldn’t resist it at a mere $10! It’s a Barnes and Noble edition, leatherbound (or whatever material is close to that), with colored end-papers and illustrations by Tenniel. It’s soft and lovely and I’m glad to own it.

  1. Forget about the price, you are unbelievably lucky to have even found this book at all: after seeing your blog entry (and since I’ve been looking for a while for an Alice in Wonderland to buy for the 150th anniversary…), I went to search for it online, and it’s literally non existent D:
    I only found one on amazon.com marketplace offered by a seller that ships worldwide, but the shipping cost between the US and Europe is just outrageous ;_;

    If you could give me any information on where to purchase it online, I would be very grateful!


    1. Wow! Sorry you’ve have such trouble. I found mine in a B&N store, so I’m not sure about online. Maybe…ebay? Or through the b&n website? Not sure if it helps any but the isbn is 9781435159549.
