A Shelf with a Row of Little Green Books

At The Fox is Black, several designers have produced Re-Covered Books, or new cover designs for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Here are four that particularly struck me today.

More at the site. Almost all strike me as more adult in sensibility than the book itself.

(Thanks to Jane Albright and the International Wizard of Oz Club’s Facebook page for the pointer.)

My favorite was the big close-up of Dorothy's face wearing the green glasses. I liked her sort of awed, sort of puzzled expression. Unlike most the designs (even ones I appreciated aesthetically) it made me want to open the book.

I was delighted to see only one cover with the ruby shoes.
