I was supposed to be watching the US Open Men's Championship Tennis match tonight. I was so excited, having followed the very competitive and exciting tournament. However, after a disappointing rain delay yesterday, play was postponed again when the drops started to fall. By the time play resumed, television coverage slots had closed and I could only get it via radio. So I am listening to the match in the old school fashion as I simultaneously surf the web. Not too bad when I come up with a discovery such as this!
Aren't these book jackets just spectacular? Coralie Bickford-Smith
is a senior cover designer at Penguin Books
, and you can see more of her work by visiting her website
. I have several of her Clothbound Series
. I started collecting them after Kate, my sister, gave me three for Christmas a year ago. I am really over-the-moon with the F. Scott Fitzgeralds
and The Penguin Poems for Love
. They are going on my wish list immediately.
You can also read an interview with Coralie, via The Casual Optimist
, in which she discusses the many facets of her career in design - Penguin, the books she loves, her inspirations, etc.
