Booking through Illustrations

btt button

How do you feel about illustrations in your books? Graphs? Photos? Sketches?

I like maps in books. It makes the places more relevant for me. Sometimes I go back to the maps again and again to feel the places more closely.

In memoirs, autobiographies or biographies, photos make a lot of sense. I like squiggles and sketches too inside the flaps. It makes the books very appealing to me.

I have to say, illustrations do not matter much to me.

I don't mind illustrations if they enhance the story.

I like illustrations in all kinds of books. But yes, I think they're especially important in most nonfiction books.
