I may be in the minority here (it was damn hard to find IG pictures of beeyoooteeful deckled edges, like the ones on Uprooted or The Wrath and the Dawn) but they make me feel FAAAANCY.
I LOOOOOVE MATTE BOOKS. I much prefer matte dust jackets to shiny ones, especially if they have a TEXTURE (that velvety finish, or rougher, or the kind that makes you want to rub your face all over it)
MAPSSSS. MAPS MAPS MAPS MAPS MAPS! MAPS! MAPS!!!!!
Chapter and Section Headers
Also illustrations and any other interior doodads that make turning the page a GIFT and a TREASURE and a DELIGHTFUL SURPRISE
Metallic lettering! Metallic finish! SHIIIIIIIIINY
MATCHING SERIES SPINES or or NAKED SHINY SPINES or OMG SPINES
Underneath It All
Naked book SURPRISES! When you finally get intimate with a book and get it undressed and THERE'S MORE THERE THAN YOU EVER DREAMED (I told you this was porn)
I want to wallpaper my whole HOUSE with these
Bonus: the book that has it all. Fancy edges. Fancy map. Fancy endpapers. Fancy chapter headers. Fancy section headers. Fancy finish. FANCY FANCY.
BECAUSE THOSE BLACK EDGES HOLY KAZ
