Do you believe in love at first sight? Sometimes that special book will catch your eye across a crowded bookstore, and you’re instantly smitten. Those colors! That typeface! A provocative cutaway! It’s so visually striking that you can’t resist picking it up – and when you do, it feels as good as it looks! But a true book lover knows that appearances deceive: sometimes the most eye-catching covers adorn the easiest stories to put down (once you get to know them). Whether it’s a stunning revisualization of a classic, or a brand new novel that makes a really good first impression, here are 21 books that are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.
Collection curated by Carly Hoogendyk.
