Elaborate Book Covers

22. April 2016

Some books trigger a desire to own them by their mere cover. At least that's our reaction to Francois Brindeau’s 1975 design of “La Chanson du vieux marin”.

The cover: an elaborate mixture of materials with different applications. The endpapers:
turquoise suede. The content: original etchings by Philippe Mohlitz.

It's always good to know there's room for improvement.
