I am a visual person and a sucker for good packaging. I am not above picking out a good wine strictly by the label. Well, the same goes for a book. So it’s no wonder that I could spend an unhealthy amount of time on the website The Book Cover Archive. My time would be better spent actually reading those books rather than ogling and analyzing their covers. But I can’t help but think how lovely these would be as wallpaper…the second best thing to having the actual books on my shelves.
I do the same thing especially with alcohol and restaurant menus, and thing that has a picture I’m getting!
Love the Book Cover Archive! So damn clean. It’s a project by Ben Pieratt (http://pieratt.com) – one of my favorite contemporary graphic designers.
