Loving ... the bookcover archive
I'm not sure if I have posted about The Bookcover Archive or not ... but it is certainly worth another post. It is a massive archive of Bookcovers for a really inspirational visual treat.
What's more, I particularly like the search criteria - you can search by Designer, Photographer, Illustrator, and even Typeface.
Search, for example, for the Typeface Akzidenz Grotesk and you get this ...
I really like this archive and, whilst I doesn't seem to have any Tolkien, it is certainly worth a bookmark.
Their blog >> http://blog.bookcoverarchive.com/ << is well worth a read too. A fascinating read on all things books and bookcover design ... that said, it hasn't been updated in 2 years. Booo!!!
