Book Club

There is nothing like checking out vintage book covers for a little inspiration. It's always a reliable source when I need a creative boost. Back in the day, designers weren't afraid to really keep it simple and practice restraint in their work. They made it appear so effortless and all without "making the logo bigger". Last night I was checking out a gaggle of retro books and found these 12 books pretty darn groovy. There I said it. Groovy.
Another favorite collection of books are the I Can Read Movies series. Who doesn't love the idea of Sixteen Candles, Teen Wolf and Gremlins illustrated in bold vintage inspired graphics? This isn't the Oprah Book Club kids. This is awesome. Also check out this great collection of Penguin & Pelican classics on flickr. Brilliant!
