The Westing Game Deluxe Anniversary Edition

Before writing The Westing Game, Ellen Raskin was an incredibly accomplished graphic artist, designing dozens of books, including the cover for the first edition of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. While writing The Westing Game, Ellen Raskin also thought about the design and layout, and ultimately the way in which it contributes to the reading experience of the story. This deluxe anniversary edition honors her original design work and displays bonus content showing the behind the scenes work of designing a book Ellen Raskin-style.
