Graphic Journey Blog: Beware: book covers ahead! Part 3
"Nothing stands out... because they treat every book as a product in its own right and they're all screaming so loudly. They have their volume knobs turned up full blast... The trick is to go the other way."

Is This the Biggest Book Cover Trend of The Year? | Literary Hub
"2018 is the year of the all-caps typography—or to be more precise, big, blocky, sans-serif type treatments... against either a riotous, black-based background or a neutral one."

Graphic Journey Blog: Things I like...
"These Penguin Modern Poets covers were designed, and mostly photographed, by Alan Spain during 1965 to 1972. I believe Spain worked at Penguin at the time but can find no information about him. Romek Marber created the typographical grid styling when the series was first introduced in 1965."

50 Watts
"...the late 60s–early 70s French magazine Plexus, a sexy offshoot of Planète. (John found it through DRTENGE.) It's an intriguing mix of surreal-fantastic-psychedelic art, interviews with writers (Jacques Sternberg was the literary editor), Playboy-style comics and the occasional Popeye comic, science fiction stories, Gilles de Rais profiles, philosophy, and—though there are few traditional photo spreads—lots and lots of boobs. Each early issue features a full-color "pin up": an erotic work by an artist like Leonor Fini."
