Judging A Book By Its Cover: Lord of the Flies

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 happy to present a special post – Zezee, from Zezee with Books has photographed her awesome edition of Lord of the Flies so I could feature it here on my blog. She’s informed me it’s a Penguin Classics Deluxe edition (of course!), published this month, ISBN: 9780143129400.

  1. Reblogged this on Zezee with Books and commented:
    My beautiful copy of the Penguin Classics Deluxe edition of The Lord of the Flies was featured by Millie, of Milliebots Reads, in her “Judging a Book by Its Cover” post.

    The post is a weekly meme where she features beautiful cover designs and packaging of both classic and contemporary books. Check it out!

  2. How terrifying, yet appropriate lol I read this book back in high school and am WAY overdue for a re-read. I remember thinking how brutal it was back then. Curious if I would have the same feelings reading it as an adult…
