design worship

have you heard of coralie bickford-smith? two of my loves coming together: design and literature in the most incredibly beautiful way. looking at her work never gets old.

a friend gave me the edition of EMMA by jane austen (shown below), which is my favorite book of austen's and matches my kitchen wall color.

and while it shames me to admit that fitzgerald remains one of those "huh?" authors for me, these might be my favorite of all coralie's designs.


  1. Ooo lovely!

    I've never seen those last ones & I love them. The colors & the art nevuo (sp) design. Love it.

  2. I might not have an eye for design like you, but I must say it's about time someone makes neat looking book covers.
