The Holy Grail of Modernist book covers is Felix’s Index of Book Design Stories. Completely thorough and sometimes overwhelming (in a very good way) archive of design. Surprisingly eceletic mix of designers, colors, lettering and techniques. Mind blowing inspiration. I couldn’t help but include some spreads from these books—for the book designers out there—enjoy.
