While the debate about the deckled edge rages on, almost everyone can agree that pretty endpapers just add something special to a book. Here are some of our favorites from this month’s #RiotGrams challenge on Instagram!

These spooky endpapers are the reverse of the colors on the already striking cover of The Butcher’s Hook by Janet Ellis.

New Erotica for Feminists has pizzas. How awesome is that?

Treat Yourself to this Rice Krispie cookbook with matching endpapers.

I’m sure it is hard for readers to return this beautiful edition of Emma to the library.

These incredibly cheerful endpapers are from Anne Arrives, a children’s adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. Look at the little Annes! Adorable.

I love these adorable monsters from Monster Trouble! so much.

This collection of protest signs from the Women’s March really sets the tone for Good and Mad by Rebecca Treister.

More than one reader shared the endpapers for Hank Green’s An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. I love the hidden message in this one!
