It's time for another edition of The Comfort of Thingy-ness (check out Vol I/II/III/IV)! I've come across a plethora of awesome book covers, and wanted to share. What have been some of your recent favorites? Comment away!
We tried loads of photographic approaches for this cover before arriving at this. I created this illustration as a last-minute entry to the Cover Meeting, and amazingly it ended up being the finished jacket. Here's the finished cover, plus a close-up of the illustration.
I love when amazing books and amazing typography come together in a perfect collage. It's like an edible bouquet for the eye and the brain... The books on this list are wonderful, in case you were wondering!
designed by FBA : I drew from this an idea I have been toying with for my bookshelves. I can run book jacket blanks through my printer: white book covers add a color stripe for each genre and subject (yes, I still value my college books), for a bright and cheery re-do of what has become a cluttered mess. I really like this idea.
