Something I’m writing at the moment has reminded me of my previous collection of book covers with eyes on, which I’ve added a few more to lately. Sadly I only own 3 of these, and for some reason didn’t buy a copy of that Clockwork Orange cover when I saw it a few years a go.
New project in my portfolio.
(In dire need of an update/refresh and a new website too)
There were some very worth winners and nominees at the D&AD awards this year. Above are a few of my personal favourites, especially good to see yellow pencils for David Pearson’s genius 1984 cover and Richard Turley’s Bloomberg Businessweek covers.
Also pictured are Here Design’s Ceviche cookbook and Phaidon’s ‘Where Chefs Eat’ which are both amazing as physical objects, Studio Dumbar’s crazy posters for Amsterdam Sinfonietta and CarterWong’s Castan typeface created out of wood for Howies.
