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!
This 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.
