Penguin on Design Series

The Penguin on Design series has been extended with four absolutely gorgeous reissued books on artists Bruno Munari, Marshall McLuhan, Susan Sontag and John Berger.

Yes Design was approached to redesign the covers for the four titles and they did an outstanding job.

I love the simple and minimal design and pure white wasn’t used in the colour palette to create an history feel. Just perfect.

Must. Get. Full. Set!

The Pelican Project

Excellent gallery of Pelican books ranging from the 1930’s to the 1980’s and organized by year. The covers designed in the 60’s and 70’s are my favorites.
