More Book Covers

January 4, 2010

The aptly named Book Cover Archive is a great place to look for inspiration. the archive includes over 1,100 contemporary book covers, which you can search for by author, title, designer, publisher, and even typeface (there are a whopping 66 covers which feature Futura, but only 2 that use Frutiger). Fine examples include this innovative series of A4 paper-based designs by Sanda Zahirovic, Jenny Grigg’s covers for Peter Carey, or the consistently excellent Jonathan Gray.

Back on the vintage-theme, but also well worthy of attention is this collection of 30 Polish book covers featured on A Journey Round My Skull, and while I’m at it, there’s a feature on some excellent Dick Bruna Covers (he’s not just for rabbits, y’know) on Grain Edit.
