Thread: Penguin Drop Caps

  1. Penguin Drop Caps

    are cute!

    A lot of us, myself included, mark out about these handsome 3DS bundles that keep cropping up and Peach Wiimotes. I thought maybe you'd like to join me in some out-marking about truly lovely editions of your favorite books!

    Jessica Hische, best known for doing lettering for Wes Anderson's titles and credits, has been designing covers for Penguin's new(ish) line of classic literature releases. I'm not sure these pictures do them justice. They're really something to see and hold.

    CAUTION: These actually kind of suck to read. There are no annotations or supplemental material and my clammy acid hands smudged the cover ink. But, I mean, come on. Look at them:













    I couldn't find a good pic, but the "g" as Piggy's cracked glasses on the Lord of the Flies cover is pretty brilliant.

  2. These are wonderful designs. This is the first time I've wanted to buy a book with the intent of staring at it on a shelf!

  5. I generally prefer the look/feel of a filthy old paperback, but I can appreciate the Piggy's glasses aspect.

    You'll care about that right up until the point when he or she shits on everything they're wearing and lying on simultaneously, which will probably include a large percentage of you.
