More Covers and Designs

I found some more book covers and cool designs over on this blog called A Sound Awareness

First up are these ones by Rudolph De Harak







And these posters by Emil Ruder







UPDATE via gog in the comments, I've chosen some more Penguins / Pelicans designed by Germano Facetti

  1. Italian graphic artist Germano Facetti did a lot of very nice covers for penguin pocket editions of R.D. Laing.
    G.F. made a (VERY)rare "book" called "Identity Kits" which was a box full of information ...an attempt at the Logos?
    this type of graphic art is relevant to my interests

  4. roger that, zagoba.
    I collected those books for the cover art when i was around 10-12 years old, and i eventually did read them. very effective book design, it literally drew me in. I still have a shelf in my library devoted to paperbacks with amazing covers, sadly, they are not all as readable as some of the titles mentioned here. mostly really weak sci-fi, but i digress...books & their covers... you be the judge.
