In Appreciation of the Naked Hardcover (via #RiotGrams)
There’s nothing quite like the pure delight I feel when I take the dust jacket off a book and discover a little surprise underneath. Finding a little bit of detailing or a beautiful color choice on a naked hardcover is like getting a random little present that makes my experience with the book that much more special.
So I’m sure you can imagine the absolute joy with which I was scrolling through the #RiotGrams hashtag on the day “naked hardcovers” was the prompt. Join me in appreciating the magic of these gorgeous books.
Check out this adorable detail on Kristen Cashore’s Jane, Unlimited.
Symphony City by Amy Martin is so vivid and bright! Absolutely beautiful.
Even small, simple details are perfect.
Anyone know what that one in the middle with the dolphins is? Because I want it.
I love this idea of all the signatures on Library of Souls.
Y’all. The Raven Cycle. Is. A. Gradient!!!
So many pretty naked hardcovers here!
