Endpapers don’t make or break the story inside a book, but they sure do add to the pretty packaging of a book. Most often while book shopping the first thing you’ll see is the cover or spine of the book. So a lot goes into the design of those features, understandably. But one of my favorite hidden surprises about books are the endpapers. If I crack open a book and find beautiful endpapers, I’m sold. Oh! how I adore pretty endpapers. It’s that added bonus that just makes us, the reader feel spoiled and I like to be spoiled, especially when it comes to books.
So let’s take a look at some gorgeous endpapers. These are some endpapers from books on my own shelves, and one I found at the library recently. Also, if you happened to have missed Part 1 I recommend checking that out.
