Judging A Book By Its Cover: Bats of the Republic

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!

Bats of the Republic sat on my wishlist for quite a while before a friend received it as a gift and loved it, telling me I had to get it. So finally, I bought it, but of course, I still haven’t read it. It’s totally happening in March though, I swear. This is a fabulously designed book, with an interactive feel and I can’t wait to dive in. The jacket and book  were apparently designed by by the author, Zachary Thomas Dodson. It was published in 2015 by Doubleday, ISBN: 9780385539838.
