... Hi DiS... it's been a while.
Give me a link to your favourite book cover art? Thanks. Need inspiration.
totally gonna decide what to read from now on based on this
it's worked out pretty pretty well so far
Great book design in general to be honest.
Paul Rand, Bruno Munari, Alan Fletcher stuff
This sorta stuff
but these guys books are pretty rad
This version of Paul Auster's Moon Palace:
So so misleading.
and all of noma bar's murakami covers, would like a print or two of these but can't find any
Bulgakov - The Master and Margarita http://www.picador.com/books/the-master-and-margarita (Although I'm sure every edition of this book has a great cover)
Richard Ford - The Lay of the Land (http://www.smh.com.au/news/book-reviews/the-lay-of-the-land/2006/11/17/1163266768765.html)
Martin Amis - London Fields (http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/entertainment/articles/2011-05/19/gq-books-50-books-you-should-read/viewgallery/41)
JG Ballard - The Atrocity Exhibition (http://www.johncoulthart.com/feuilleton/2006/08/15/jg-ballard-book-covers/) - I love the way it riffs on the 'Born to Run' artwork
althought I love all of the current JG Ballard editions, although they're a bit Banksy
