I know, I know….no judging books by their covers. But when they are already classics, you can’t really go wrong. Right? You will come to notice here at Aurelia, that I am a bit of a book cover junkie. So, in order to indulge my minor obsession I’ll be bringing you some of my favorites in a segment called Cover Fix. Here’s what has my aesthetic senses all tingly today…
Penguin UK has designed some absolutely gorgeous new covers for their Penguin Classics (RED) Edition. I’m not sure if they are available here in the US, but I’d love to get my hands on these for my collection. In the mean time, just wandering around their mini-site dedicated to these designs has been a wickedly delicious distraction. I highly suggest running on over to the site, where you can peruse all the amazing jackets, hear from the cover designers and learn about how (RED) works.
Bonus: While you are there, see if you can resist downloading a few free posters of the cover art. And be sure to follow them on twitter, so you can cast your vote for the next covers to be posterized.
