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!
That Inevitable Victorian Thing was written by E.K. Johnston and has jacket art by Elizabeth Traynor and design by Elaine Damasco and was published in 2017 by Dutton, ISBN: 9781101994979. I believe I bought this from Book Outlet because it was cheap, the cover was lovely and I think it’s some sort of sci-fi. I, naturally, haven’t read this, but taking the photos got me itching to pick it up. Therefore, it’ll probably sit on my shelves collecting dust for at least two more years.
