Hey all! Today on The Arts Shelf I have the most beautiful book to spotlight today; the special edition of a book I hold very close to my heart. It is of course the Special Edition ADSOM by V E Schwab and it is gorgeous!
First of all the original cover is amazing. I probably don't say it enough but I absolutely adore this cover! The image of Kell with his magical coat in all its layered glory, atop the four Londons intertwining is just beautiful.
Second, the hardcover foil image. Oh, my beautiful Kell. How amazing is it? I know it's the cover image done in foil, so it's not new so to speak. But is such a beautiful way to add to the hardcover beneath the jacket.
Which brings us to the jacket itself. So many images of our beloved characters come to life! Exquisite in every way! I especially love the one below, which features Kell and Rhy in a way that really does highlight their unique bond, both brotherly and magically.
Last but by no means least, the end pages. RED LONDON. Oh gee, these are probably the most beautiful end pages I have ever seen. I mean... Just look at it. Wow.
What do you think of this gorgeous book? As always feel free to leave a comment below or @ me on Twitter!
