Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're going the way of the classics but with a twist as we explore a recent release from the fab team over at Quirk Books. (~waves~) It stars the work of an author that has been explored and re-explored over the centuries (yes, CENTURIES) for its literary merit...but today, we judge it by its cover, or rather covers.
200 Years of Classic Covers
Margaret C Sullivan
Can you imagine the number of editions that have hit the shelves over the last 200 years? From classic bindings to full color covers, gold gilded designs to those you wonder where they came from, this collection showcases them all and then some.
Call it a great edition to the coffee table of the literary goddess in your life (*raises hand*), or simply a conversation starter that allows you the chance to see how these classics were represented to the masses throughout the years. You'll have your favorites, trust me. My own personal choices? Seek out page 26 (the peacock edition), page 102 (the Red classics), and page 93 (Headline Review)...to name a few.
