‘There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home: a cover with a house/abandoned house
This week’s pick is The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe.
And the Winner Is:
There were over 200 covers for various versions of The Fall of the House of Usher, so I selected four that I thought were appealing. Because this is a classic, there are many covers that should be embarrassed to be on the front of a book- dull, awful things that don’t make people curious as to the contents. My picks had a *little* more character. The third cover is my favorite because the house featured is whimsical and dark, reminding me of parallel worlds or a mirror image. The cover that looks like macabre illuminated scrollwork is my second favorite. Very fitting for a Poe story. Which is your favorite?
