at the friends of the library book sale this spring, i was particularly enchanted with these old editions of books that i most definitely already own. call it excessive, but i couldn’t resist these gorgeous covers of books that i already love and cherish. book design has always appealed to me and i love these for their 60s graphic sensibility and overall simplicity and effectiveness.
