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!
This week I’m featuring a book I haven’t read yet: McCormick Templeman’s The Glass Casket. Here is the book with the dust jacket, and the hard cover underneath:
I’ve been looking forward to reading this book for a while, and I love the cover. On the hardcover, I love the contrast of the red bird on the black cover, and I like the placement of the bird in the top right corner, off centre. I can’t wait to read this one and see how the covers suit the story!
Have you read this one? Do the covers fit with the story?
