Great Book Covers

bookpicture15 Great Book Covers woolf william faulkner samuel beckett penguin classics king lear henry IV Hemingway godot fiesta burgess book covers a winters tale

We looked around our book shelf today, and noticed a lot of classics that we owned didn’t have the best book jacket designs. So we looked around the Interweb to find the best versions of some of the best books we have ever read and enjoyed and continue to enjoy. Some seem to be part of a great era of Penguin publishing, so are eerily minimal, and others have just classic illustrations. From Barron Storey’s legendary Lord of the Flies cover, to the perfect type treatment for Beckett, here are some examples of excellent graphic and illustrative book jacket design. —The Citrus Staff

PANDA BEAR “Surfer’s Hymn” from m ss ng p eces on Vimeo.

This Panda Bear video has been making the rounds the past few months on the interweb, but its damn good, and its about ghost and skeletons that surf at night. At least that is what the video shows. And the song is good.
