Judging a book by its beautiful cover

I prefer the somewhat utilitarian trade paperback to the hardcover book. I usually take off the jacket and am left with a bland inflexible book. However! I saw photos of the elaborate jacket and cover design for Michael Chabon’s new book “Maps and Legends.” And wow. Cool and pretty! Also: If you remove the jacket from the book, the hardcover itself is also cool looking. The jacket comes in separate layers for each color to make the design.
