Indulgent Cover Editions That Have Our Hearts (And Our Money)
Whoever said one mustn’t judge a book by its cover has obviously never been introduced to the world of special edition book covers. While we love novels in all shapes and sizes – and do not discriminate, really – we cannot deny that oftentimes, packaging certainly does go a long way in enhancing their appeal. Today, with publishing houses going the extra mile to bring out some exceptional covers, it’s hard to resist hoarding multiple copies of the same book. While most deluxe editions are released on anniversaries and other important milestones, some are simply part of interesting initiatives by publishing houses.
From leather and clothbound editions to those crafted from the loveliest handmade paper, from hardbacks to paperbacks, and from wonderfully-put-together boxed sets to themed solos, here are some of the most luxe beauties that the inner bookworm in you will rush to purchase.
