Judging A Book By Its Cover: Sherlock Holmes Pop-Up (II)

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 week I’m featuring an awesome pop-up book that I randomly found in the bargain section of Barnes & Noble for about $6. So worth it! It contains two unabridged stories – A Scandal in Bohemia and The Blue Carbuncle – with pop-up segments and full color illustrations. It was released in 2014 by Canterbury Classics, ISBN: 9781607108979.
