A Book By It's Cover

A great book really does need a fantastic cover! We all do it, it is natural to judge a book by it's cover. 

Coralie Bickford-Smith has gained huge notoriety for her designs for Penguin Books.  She studied typography and graphic communication at university and is in my opinion a ace surface designer.  I really appreciate her ultra modern use of colour.  Her colour choices are innovative while remaining refined.  Her graphics are polished while still nostalgic.
