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 do purchase special editions of books and 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 picked this up for Mum for Mother’s Day and it was too pretty not to photograph. Published in 2016 by Chronicle Books. Design by Jennifer Tolo Pierce, text by Emily Zach, forward by Steven Heller, introduction by Linda Lear and afterword by Eleanor Taylor. ISBN: 9781452151274.
