Penguin cover design


I don’t know about you, but I’m sad to say I quite often purchase a bottle of wine purely on the design of the label. (Usually, much to my disappointment.) However, I would have to say, I would buy this collection of literature just to have the cover designs to hand when I wanted to admire some exquisite typography. Literature of this calibre deserves design of this calibre.

But does it float?


But does it float is an interesting website where I found these gems. The cover designs link through to a German website which has a myriad of other examples for your delectation. I would have linked the covers directly to the German site but when I tried it was verboten. You can still access them by the But does it Float website. It’s worth the extra little bit of clicking.
