Don’t judge a book by its cover…

But its so hard not too!

“The gift” cover shot

I was in Waterstones today, just having a browse in the art section of the store, and almost immediately “The gift” by Lewis Hyde caught my eye. Its a book about the importance of creativity in society today. It was orginally released twenty years ago, but it is just as relevent today. It has a lot of good reviews. So i brought it, cant wait to read it. Now all i have to do is find the time!

I really like this cover created by Pentagram, which is one of my favourite design firms.
I love the layout of the type and i really like the handwriiten type its a nice personal quality too add. This style of simplistic design with plenty of white space will be the style i will eventually produce my magazine in.

A nice piece of eye candy to stubble across on a Monday morning.
