Before bookstagram, I never really took the time to appreciate the details of a hardcover: the binding, the gold foil stamp on the outside, endpapers, deckle edged pages. Do I have your attention now? Haha. If the hardcover details are just as good as the jacket art, it’s total booknerd joy.
Here are my latest purchases from my book dealers—Amazon, Costco, Book Outlet, and Thriftbooks. I thought these would be perfect for the bare hardcovers challenge and I was pleasantly surprised. Most surprising was The Library of Souls hardcover color and details. The covers of the Miss Peregrine’s series are black and white, so it was a pleasant surprise to see this gorgeous color on the hardcover.
What’s a bare hardcover that makes you swoon? I’ve started three of these books. Have you guys read any of these? What did you think? No spoilers please!
