So, this post is going to be about books that I find aesthetically pleasing. There are a lot of them.
Click on the pictures to make them larger! Keep going!Firstly, the book I am reading at the moment.I love the simplicity of the design, but could do without the text in the gray box. Bit distracting. Not sure the house is how I picture it in the book, but then, when is it?
Next is this rather fabulous edition of Thunderball, back when books cost 3’6 and not £7.99.
This is a set called the Penguin English Journeys, which even in the damaged state mine is in, is very nice looking.
Each book has a little quote on them, this one being from Country Lore and Legends.
Up next is a book that was given to me by a friend. I have read most of the stories from this book and have several volumes of the same thing but I will never get rid of this one.
Next is another book I have also read (half of) in a different copy, but this is another author whose books I could have in multiple.
It also looks great without the dust jacket.
The Ascent of Everest is a book that I probably won’t read for a long time, but it is stunning. It was very hard to take an accurate picture of the cover because the colour is so vivid. A few of the pictures make it look green even though it’s actually more blue.
Then we have a more modern cover, the Vintage Classic edition of Apsley Cherry-Garrard’s The Worst Journey In The World. I asked for this specific edition for Christmas because I like it that much.
Lastly is a book which Danni bought for me a few years ago. I’ve been meaning to take pictures and show it off somehow and this seemed the right chance.
Penguin Bill Amberg Design Brideshead Revisited.
I would love to see other pretty books, show me them!
That’s all for now,
