I have long been a fan of the Penguin Classics range. The beautiful orange and black that look so neat and professional on your bookcase. Not to mention that they are must reads from all periods in time. Well, recently while browsing in a bookstore I saw that the Penguin Classic collection has been given an authentic facelift. These books transport you back to the time when the titles were written, when books were treasured. The colours are gorgeous and romantic and the screenprinting on the fabric is something that is just not seen today in book cover design. Does this mean I now need to update my book collection? Seems you can judge a book by its cover… classic.
If you’re interested in book cover design check out the book cover archive. This site showcases classic, everyday and obscure titles and best of all pushes the bounds of everyday book cover design.
