Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Notes From the Shadowed City

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 gorgeous book is a fantastic collection of Jeffrey Alan Love’s art (you may know him from his work on book covers; personally I discovered his work on the cover of a book by Simon Ing). Flesk Publications, 2016, ISBN: 978-1933865928.
