Six for Sunday is a weekly prompt hosted by Steph over at A Little But A Lot, each week there’s a new bookish topic to post about.
This week the topic is favourite covers/types of cover, we all know you should never judge a book by its cover but let’s face it, some books were designed to just look beautiful sat on your shelves, below are some of my favourite series and individual covers.
Penguin Leatherbound Classics ~ I’m slowly building up a bit of a collection of these, at £20 a book they’re not cheap but they look amazing and they’re lovely to read.
Fairlight Moderns ~ This collection all have beautiful bold covers, there are 10 so far and I’m hoping there might be more to follow this year, generally, they’re under the 200 page mark, my favourites so far have been Bottled Goods and Minutes from Miracle City.
Persephone Books ~ I managed to visit Persephone Books for the first time at the start of the month and picked up three beautiful books; all books published by Persephone have plain grey covers, I’d describe them as a light hardback and would really recommend visiting the store in London if you have a chance.
Harry Potter Hardback House Editions ~ I’ve changed my mind about these so often, I loved the black/colour of Philosopher’s Stone released in 2017 but was less keen on the brightly coloured Chamber of Secrets the year after. However, now I have four I can see how amazing this is going to look once all seven are released.
The Comparison Cure∆ ~ I read this in January and realised partway through that the cover is basically the cover colour palette matches my vision for how I’d like our spare room/office to look in an ideal world – in reality, I don’t think my husband will go for the pink but I can try.
The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night∆ ~ I love how intricate this cover is, it almost feels magical. The more you look at it the more you spot and once you’ve read the book and can see where different elements have come it all becomes quite meaningful.
Do you collect any books for the covers? Have you ever bought a book just because you liked the cover?
