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.
I love the strong and powerful use of color against the black and white. The use of the torn away paper is very effective for the idea of old and new. It also brings an element of 3D to the design, as if you can peel the paper off further.
My latest dose of inspiration comes from Coralie Bickford-Smith, senior designer over at Penguin, who has been praised far and wide recently for her covers for the Great Food series. They are so elegant, homey and thoughtful. #books #book covers #design
