Penguin Books cover design by Coralie Bickford-Smith
My Uncle John had shelves and shelves of beautiful books, mostly leather- and cloth-bound. He had first editions and rare prints and many of them were frayed on the spine. They were very cinematic to me. I thought, I should pick one of those up and read it under a tree while wearing a sundress and sipping apple juice in a glass jar from Martinelli's.
Apparently the people at Anthropologie had similar cinematic fantasies, for they included some pretty books in their latest catalog. Following the links led me to Coralie Bickford-Smith's website, which shows off her beautiful work for Penguin Books.
This is what graphic design can be.
Thanks again, Jezebel.
