Awesome book cover Friday: A Wrinkle in Time, now 50 years old

A Wrinkle in Time, written by Madeleine L’Engle, turned fifty years old on Tuesday. Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, who originally published the book, have released commemorative editions with the original hardcover and paperback jackets (along with some extras inside), but I prefer a more artistic style:

Description of the book as listed on Amazon:

Fifty years ago, Madeleine L’Engle introduced the world to A Wrinkle in Time and the wonderful and unforgettable characters Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, and their friend Calvin O’Keefe. When the children learn that Mr. Murry has been captured by the Dark Thing, they time travel to Camazotz, where they must face the leader IT in the ultimate battle between good and evil—a journey that threatens their lives and our universe. A Newbery Award winner, A Wrinkle in Time is an iconic novel that continues to inspire millions of fans around the world. This special edition has been redesigned and includes an introduction by Katherine Paterson, an afterword by Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis that includes photographs and memorabilia, the author’s Newbery Medal acceptance speech, and other bonus materials.
