The first book cover for Dracula was crappy by today’s standards. The first book cover for Wuthering Heights was crappy by today’s standards. The first book covers for Sherlock Holmes, for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, for Pride and Prejudice, for Romeo and Juliet, for Macbeth, for Lord of the Flies, and for Faust were crappy by today’s standards… The list goes on.
But still, the stories are timeless, and original, and captivating. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
If you judge a book by it’s cover, you might miss out on an amazing story.
And I’m not just talking about books.
