Jessica Hische Takes On "The Classics"
We've all been drooling over the Penguin Clothbound Classics for a few years now. I will happily take one of each please! They obviously thought of bringing gorgeous vintage-looking books back in response to the e-Reader phenomenon just to let us all know that reading can be both an enjoyable and beautiful experience. But...what Penguin didn't have in their arsenal was one Jessica Hische, aka my #1 Design crush. Nice job, Barnes & Noble. Way to one-up the competition! And while I definitely like the fun and feminine colors of Penguins books better, the typography, hand-lettering, and graphic details on these Barnes & Noble Classics are sooo may-jah. What do you guys think?
