Certainly a must-have addition to any book designers shelf. From Amazon:
A unique exploration into the subtle art of the book cover
High standards in art and design have always been part of Penguin’s publishing program. Now, on the occasion of Penguin’s 75th anniversary, longtime art director Paul Buckley has chosen seventy-five covers that represent the best of what Penguin has produced over the course of the last decade. Giving readers a rare behind-thescenes glimpse into the complex creation of a book’s cover, Penguin 75 includes comments from authors, agents, and editors, as well as the designers and artists themselves. This witty and irreverent journey into the book world will appeal to lovers of art, design, and, of course, books.
Do yourself a favor and buy this gem. I know I am.
