This week's topic is:
Book of Magic
I wasn't entirely sure where to take this week's topic, but as soon as I thought of magic, I pictured Angie Sage's Septimus Heap trilogy since the first book is, quite simply, titled Magyk! I really enjoyed this series as a kid, although I don't think I ever got around to finishing it. There weren't as many covers as I expected there to be, but I still found it fun to look at some of the variations, both big and small!
2005 US Hardcover | 2012 US Kindle
2008 German | 2010 Chinese
2014 Arabic | 2005 Czech
I love this classic cover! It completely evokes the idea of magic and gives me the most classic and nostalgic fantasy vibes ever, which was exactly what this book was like as well.
What cover(s) do you like the most?
