It seems to me that if you're going to spring for an actual book instead of an electronic edition, you might as well buy the most beautifully designed one you can find. (Perhaps that's the silver lining in this publishing revolution -- actual, physical books are going to have to get even more beautiful in order to survive.) Here's a gorgeous version of Christmas Books: A Christmas Carol and Other Stories by Dickens. This has cloth covers with gold foiling in the little windows. You can view the entire piece of artwork, which covers front, spine, and back at the very end of this blogpost by the Caustic Cover Critic -- that site is worth exploring -- or at the website of the artist, Joe McLaren.
