Truth time. My bookshelves are a mess. Like, I'm too embarrassed to post a picture of them mess. And the less said about my random heap of books that I don't have shelf space for the better! So, with a day off work and some industrial strength cleaning products, I set about putting that right. Which brings me to the point of my rambling; cover art.
|One of these things is not like the others...|
|And I literally only just realised that one of them is a different size too!|
Given that even having book series' together on a shelf is something of a novelty for me, I'm not losing sleep over this, but it did get me thinking about some of the prettier bookshelves I've seen. How important is matching cover art in a series to you guys? Would you make a special effort to get matching covers? Maybe even buy new books if the artwork changed part way through a series? I can't help but think that a few mismatched trilogies would ruin the works of art that are some of the shelves I've seen.
