As I mentioned in my previous post I’m reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
The version of the book I have is the all in one hard back edition shown above. Under the dust jacket the book is black and dignified looking, with silver lettering on the spine. It is in fact, my ideal book style wise.
Which is lucky because every time I read a hard back book I have to take the dust jacket off, because otherwise it slips around and gets trashed along the edges.
I’ve never been sure why a hard back book needs a paper thin protection layer, after all the hardback cover can look after itself.
What do you think, dust jackets yay or nay?
