This is the start of a new feature! I got the idea after I was sorting and reorganizing my bookshelf and the dust jacket slipped off one of my books, revealing a beautiful hard cover underneath. I started taking the dust jackets off my other hard covers, checking for any imprints or graphics underneath that I’d never noticed. I wanted to share my love of the hidden treasure under the dust jackets!
The first book to be featured is Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn. Here is the book with the dust jacket on, and then the hardcover underneath:
The image on the dust jacket is a bit mysterious and spooky, but the image of the razor blade that’s on the hard cover is chilling. If you’ve read the book, you’ll know why! I love this hardcover because it features a really important element of the story and I love the contrast between the shiny silver of the razor, and the black of the hardcover.
What do you guys think of this hidden treasure hard cover? Does it fit the story? Let me know in the comments!
