Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Pride and Prejudice (XVI)

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

Book Outlet was having a sale and I was powerless to resist yet another edition of one of my favorite novels. This one was published in 2018 by Paper Mill Press, with cover design by Yvonne Fetig Roehler, ISBN: 9781926444239. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this edition as a reading copy – if, like me, you enjoy keeping your nice editions nice – as it shows dirt easily and I can imagine the floppy covers would show wear and bend easily. Take it from me, an Expert Austen Hoarder, this one is for shelves only – but given the price, it’s worth it!

    1. It’s a theme I see often in P&P designs. I think it’s because peacocks are somehow associated with pride? I mean they’re pretty beautiful and I’m sure the males flaunt their lovely tails. But I’m not sure they’re a truly prideful creature – then again, maybe they are?


      1. Wow, I thought they were implying peacocks parade around the grounds of rich people like Mr. Darcy. Peacocks representing pride makes a lot more sense. Whether they really are proud, though, I can’t say. I guess I have to ask a peacock! 😀


          1. Well, it’s a good thing I have you to explain the significance of peacocks to me, haha! Because I was way off! XD


    1. Yeah when they first showed the set I was disappointed cuz I think they were only selling all the classics and this is the only one I wanted. For the price, it’s pretty good. Though I won’t read this copy cuz it’ll bend and get dirty too easily lol
