This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent – I created this feature to highlight and appreciate the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many wonderful editions!
You may recall I’ve done a post in the past focusing on covers that mainly feature typography – I thought I’d do it again. And if you were wondering, no, I haven’t read either. -insert cry/laughing emoji here-
Borne by Jeff Vandermeer was published in 2017 by 4th Estate and has a jacket design by Jo Walter, ISBN: 9780008159177.
