this is a pretty godawful cover desu senpai.
The only slightly clever thing about it are the black sections covering the title and the author. The rest is pretty terrible and doesn't reflect the book in any way.
Bright orange and white cover withe the publisher's title and logo in large is just really really bad.
Latvian translation of Master and Margarita
The quote ruins it a bit.
Under the dust jacket is the brightest green imaginable.

It's dreadfully on-the-nose, nig-nog.
It's alright if you need shit spelling out for you and you struggle to comprehend your ABCs, but most people on here are more functional than that.
It's about aesthetic, which is the only concern I have when choosing between different book covers. This one is incredibly aesthetic, the girl is attractive and beautiful, other covers I have seen don't even come close. Don't pretend like you wouldn't choose a different book on the basis of how good the cover looks. There are many editions of Lolita, each attracting a different audience. This cover, as it happens, is the one which attracts the pedophile.
why is there a thread about covers everyday?
why people cares about covers? the girl (or homosexual) that make the cover of the book didn't read the book, doesn't care and just has some indication of the editor to work.
the worst thing is that there are artist's books, and those covers are the important, but I never see one of them here...
I think all the covers by this publisher look really great, very simple but they still look fantastic, and the fact that they're all aesthetically similar is always a plus.
Amazon says it's Scribner.
But yeah, these Hemingway covers are great.
The girl's face is aesthetically appealing. Lolita deserves a cover of this sort; the little girl is pretty, it's a good cover for this book. I have yet to see a cover of Lolita that surpasses that one apart from maybe the cover with the photograph of the girl reading the book. On an slightly unrelated note, I think this Balthus painting would make for a great Lolita cover.
the funny thing is that this is the only book I bought soleley for it's cover... I was 15 at the time, it really impact me back then... Such an amazing novel and such an amazing cover...
Too bad I can't seem to find any bigger images. I already contacted the editorial here in my country asking for a larger version, a poster maybe, willing to pay for it, but got no response. Shame. And it's only the national cover, unfortunately.
>I bought soleley for it's cover
nigga do you even "never by a book by its cover"? Are you dumb?
as I said it was a funny story. My sister had just bought twilight, which in my country is published by intrínseca. Along with the book there was a little catalog of the publisher's titles. And there was that book... The synopsis didn't really appeal to me at first, but the cover... I can't explain it properly, but I found it extremely scary. Dreadful, I got frightened by a fucking book cover. It was midday and I was home alone, still I got so fucking scared of that cover... It crawled up my nerves. I thought to myself, I have to buy this book. So I asked my mom to buy it for me. She didn't like the story, about a school shooter, as she always said to live in fear of me doing some sort of columbine-like rampage. So I stole 37 bucks from her wallet and bought it myself. I was prepared to hate the book and pay the price of vanity, but in the end I loved it. Evil children is an amazing subject, how not to love it.
Spanish edition of "Mason & Dixon". It fits Pinecone's story and style in a weird but accurate manner.
If you have anime pictures saved on your computer you don't get to have opinions.
Go back to whatever hole you crawled out of you miserable waste of life.
while i do agree some of Balthus's work could be used, i disagree with this piece as it is one of the least sexualized images of girls he created and is one that gives a sense of extreme maturity which is contrary to what the MC was craving
"Extreme maturity" is an overstatement. I think there is a mixture of youth and maturity. Dolores is presented as fairly precocious, which I think the painting displays. As for the least sexualized, I'm not sure I agree with you there.
the book is not so great, but the cover gives me the chills...
I've been admiring this copy for ages. The way the light reflects off the silvery curves is elegant; the colours and drawing style are nicely gloomy.
The inner half-sleeve has a few quoted passages with more drawn scenes. Really nice.
Alas, I already own a copy. Maybe once she's left I can be joined with this one.

Love this one.
Also, pic related. Has a nice matte finish.
I really like this one, it looks great on my shelf
why the fuck are these nabokov editions so expensive? they're £12 and it's not like they're limited edition because you see them everywhere and they don't have an introduction/explanatory notes or anything of the sort. it's infuriating because the covers look so nice
Yeah, if you leave the title on it only returns the book's cover on loads of useless Swedish sites that don't tell you the name of the illustrator even in translation. The original publisher has a new edition with a different cover so they have no information on that one.
I got dracula and frankenstein from the penguin classics series.
Some of them arent the worse. The Iliad, Odyssey, Arabian Nights, and Huckleberry Finn all look ok.
Already got Poe's works from that barnes and noble collection. I'll check out AG though.
Was thinking of getting the pratchett books from Folio.
Come on man. Gaudy has been the exact word used since early september for these editions.
Try with some eloquence instead of regurgitation.
I actually quite like their edition of The Count of Monte Cristo. Though I'll concede that a lot of them are kitsch, tawdry, gaudy if you insist, etc.
it wouldn't even be so bad if the quality wasn't total shit, i mean the look good when u see a pic of them on ebay or sth, but like once u see one irl they're just total shit...but even then the covers remind me of some awful book club collection of shit ur granny ordered off an infomercial in 1975...bad all around
The books are fine. It's your taste that's shit. Much like your grammar.
The first story is about working as a mortician and hate fucking Bukowski's corpse's asshole, it always reminded me of /lit/
