Recent Book Designs I Love

I thought I’d really shake things up this week. Below you will see NO Penguins. What’s more, the editions you see below were all released relatively recently. I had a desire to pay respect to great looking books of today, so I scanned my shelves for a few favourites. This should also convince people that I don’t just buy books printed before 1970. Have an amazing weekend and, should you suffer Penguin withdrawal, you can of course find all of my previous entries here.
