Yesterday I spent a lovely evening at Barnes & Nobles (another of my designer vices). I do love to just walk around and look at bookcovers, and I thought, why not make a post out it if. So here’s a load of what I found.

First a bit of retro…

I found this interesting series of very graphic Albert Camus books too, they looked great lined up, their backs forming a great pattern…

Last but not least a few examples of great ambience in the visual communication.
