Coordinate Adjectives Vs Cumulative Adjectives.

1 post in this topic

This is bothering me somewhat.


Every time I find myself using a couple of adjectives to modify a noun, I feel like I should be using a comma.


His house was in a small, isolated place. 

She carved her name in the rough, flaky bark.

He had a bright, breezy look on his face.


But every time I read a book, I notice that the commas are rarely present. Is this a mistake from the publishers or do they just not worry too much about this particular practice? 


Am I worrying about nothing?
