Loving... 'The Pelican Project'
While researching an idea for an album cover, I came across Things Magazine's The Pelican Project. An online archive of Pelican's bookcover designs from the 1930s through to the 1980s.
The screengrab above highlights some of the fascinating designs produced in the 1960s.
I was particularly taken with "The Rise of Meritocracy" by Michael Young from 1965.
All in ... if you like bookcover design or design in general ... then Things Magazine's The Pelican Project is well worth a delve into.
I feel a whole new nerdy obsession / collection coming on.
