Stuart said...Book cover design is what it's at (dude)!I've been finding myself increasingly disinterested in album artwork and posters and web design and it's books that I most often go "Oooh" at.I wonder if it's because it's perhaps the final remaining media that we still walk into a shop and browse for. When was the last time anyone bought an album because they liked the looks of the sleeve? It's been a good few years for me.
peak said...I love book cover design too. I think one of the things I like about it, is that as books become historical, in either a major or minor way, you also then get to see them re-imagined by a designer.
