The first (I am Legend- which is nothing like the movie by the same name) is simple, strange, and features rounded corners.
The second was part of a set of Neil Gaiman's books, all published in matte black with foil icons. Someday I will either have millions of dollar to spend at my whim, or the moral flexibility and skill necessary to smuggle a whole set of books out the door. (It's about quality AND quantity.)
Out of context, maybe these aren't so impressive. Definitely not compared to these beautiful photos of the new Penguin Classics.
I thought I'd share a few more of my shelf favourites. They are a mixed batch, from old (Pride and Prejudice from '62) to new (don't you just love the red pages in Christopher Moore's book?), to more from overseas (my goal is to have each HP book from a different country, I'm nearly halfway through.)
Since you're reading, will you send me photos of your favourite covers?
