Another classic that’s gone through some significant cover revisions.Y’know what else is looking kinda slanty? This picture! The alignment on this scanner is all funky, and getting the covers to sit at a 90-degree angle without clipping is a little like playing a low-stakes round of Stackenblocken.

The rudest thing I’ve ever been called at a library service desk? “Dead-eyed nincompoop.”
Wonder why I thought of that just now.

Dual-gog!I picked up a bunch of paperbacks from a charity sale at Homer Davenport Days + a scanner that my Dad couldn’t figure out how to use, so we are back in business. A lot of these are going to be clickable for hi-res. It is an exciting time.

Anastasia’s jaw starts to wobble when she considers the goldfish. The Anastasia series is awesome (I like to think that Anastasia grows up to be Liz Lemon) but it’s a good example of a series that’s been both helped and hindered by the many, many different covers it’s gone through - basically a new one for every new edition of every book in the series. The books have remained on store shelves and in libraries for 30+ years, but at a cost - the cover models used for Anastasia have slowly aged up as the years have gone by. She’s supposed to be 11 in this one.
…and 10 in this one.
