Aren't these book spines lovely? The design is by designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, who according to The Book Design Review, designed book jackets for the Penguin Gothic Horror series. This series above, are all great works of literature including Sense and Sensibility, Jane Eyre, and Crime and Punishment.
What do you think? If all books were designed like this, would you read more? I would certainly be inclined to at least flip through the pages.
