book worship

So this guy Shawn Hazen, graphic designer who has a studio, Hazen Creative in Chicago, has a massive collection of books whose covers were designed between 1950 and 1980, respectively. He takes awesome huge pictures for us and posts them on his wonderful blog Book Worship, and sorts them into neat little categories based on who designed it, or the content of the cover. Many of them aren’t even design books, just arbitrary topics with famous designers for the covers, or never-heard-of-it designers who still designed awesome covers. Lots of triangles, circles, and overprinting. Go take a look! (I own the Chicago famous buildings one. Really brave minimal cover, considering it’s a photographic guide.)
