Great Ideas, Volume III
Well heck, it's that time of year again, and the third volume of Penguin's Great Ideas Series is about to hit the shelves (early August we're reliably informed). Once again, the bulk of the designs are by the marvellously talented David Pearson, including the magnificent The Sickness unto Death cover (above); with additional covers by Phil Baines and Catherine Dixon. Our very own Alistair Hall also got in on the act with a cover for The Evils of Revolution by Edmund Burke (below).
You can see the complete volume on this Flickr set, and check out David Pearson's site for Volume I and Volume II. We think they're all looking great, but if we had to choose, our personal favourite is Pearson's cover for The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, which takes the design from the spine and simply repeats it on the front cover (below).
