At our house, we consider book covers to be high art, and we display books everywhere, rotating them in and out according to the season (which reminds me — it’s time to go and find Bats on the Beach).  Some books are year-rounders, such as Ish and  The Dot, because they remind us to create freely and fearlessly. Here are a few photos of our books-as-art, including a shot of one of my childhood picture books, The Crane Maiden, and another photo of a stack of my grownup books served up on my grandmother’s cake platter. (We cannot keep cake around the house, as some of us have zero willpower, so we serve up books on it instead.)
