Beautiful Books

These books are gorgeous! I dream of having an extensive collection of classic books that are this style one day.

Each book is beautifully designed by renowned artists who are commissioned by White’s Books. White’s books is the publishing house of David Pearson who was a former Penguin Books designer. Some of the amazing talent that are designing these breath taking covers are Petra Borner (a fashion designer who has worked for Louis Vuitton), Stanley Donwood (a wood-and lino-cut artist that is best known for coming up with Radiohead’s album artwork), and Joe McLaren (He works for The Times and Monocle as an illustrator).

This retro style is my favorite! It has an art deco, art nouveau feel to it that I really love!

  1. Wow, those are great! Especially Sherlock Holmes–the twisting smoke kind of reminds me of all the paths of the mysteries.

  2. If my books in high schooled looked this beautiful I probably would’ve been more intrigued to read them!
