My colleagues and I in the Library & Archives are very lucky to work with such fascinating and varied collections. But sometimes it is easy to take for granted the shelves upon shelves of books that we walk past in corridors on a daily basis.

 

IMG_1662.JPGIMG_1666.JPGIMG_1664.JPG

 

Recently we had a small display in our reading room, of some of the gems we have where the cover alone catches the imagination before you've even opened it up.

 

On a shelf with hundreds of others, with only a spine to catch the eye.

 

IMG_1658.JPGIMG_1671.JPG

 

The amount of detail and thought put into some is incredible. Of course they come from a period where photography was either non-existent or only in its infancy and where the skill of the artist was the only way to make your book stand out from the rest.

 

The subject of natural history lends itself so well to the creativity of a publisher/author, and it is fascinating how they weave the theme of the book into the design of it's cover.
