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

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!

I, like every other Alice hoarder, had to have the Rifle Paper Co. anniversary edition of Alice in Wonderland. So I  made it happen.  It came out in the fall of last year, illustrated by Anna Bond, published by Puffin, ISBN: 9780147515872. It’s faaaaabulous and I love it.

Nyeaaahhhh!!

poor Bill!
