This is Day #5 of my Book Cover Lover challenge! I’ve really enjoyed this mini-series, and if you decide to do it yourself, do tag me in your posts!

For the final day, I have chosen The Complete Fairy Tales collection of The Brothers Grimm! It was published in 2009, as part of the Wordsworth Library Collection. I picked it up secondhand on Amazon, so there’s a little wear and tear on the cover and some of the pages, but the fairy tales remain beautifully intact!

imageThis book is an uncoated hardback, and the cover has a fabric feel to it, just like really old books do. The bright red is really lovely, and even the edges of the pages are coloured red – again reminding me of really old books, or really old editions of The Bible.

To be honest, I’m not sure what the glossy image is adding to the cover – it obviously relates to one of the stories, but which one I don’t know (I haven’t read every single story yet)!

However, without a doubt, my favourite thing about this cover is the use of gold foil for the font material. It’s simply stunning and I love the style of font too – everything about this book escorts me back to how books used to be made and I love it! The text is a little faded in places as, like I said, this book has suffered a little wear and tear.

Overall though, I love this book cover.

What do you think of this cover? What is your favourite Brothers Grimm story? Let me know below!

  1. I have some books with this sort of cover and I absolutely love them, particularly if they have those thick creamy pages that have a texture all of their own (they smell heavenly too!). I have found this blog through being part of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team and I’m delighted to have done so. Welcome to the team Judith 🙂

  2. This is like book porn for me. I walk into book shops just to run my hands over the covers (because that’s not creepy at all… 🙄) Love your description! I think books with a little wear and tear means they are well loved!
