Neil Krug Update

So I just placed my order today for Neil Krug‘s Pulp Art Book! I’ve been waiting over a year now for it to be released and now it is finally here. Being one of my favorite photographers, his work never seizes disappoint me. Here a taste of some of his latest work. The colors are absolutely amazing. I really need to get a hold of some expired polaroid film.

The Infamous Press

Here are some really amazing vintage book cover concepts by Norwegian designer Morten Iveland. So believe it or not these are not actually vintage book covers but were created to visually look as if they were. Iveland did a great job of achieving this effect with his wonderful attention to color and especially paper texture.

I was on ffffound earlier today and I stumbled on the Letraset USA book cover. I researched it to find out more but didn’t get very far. I did run across a European blog called Evasion. The Letraset cover was a part of a post called 100 Design Book Covers on the blog and I was really amazed by the epic selections they had presented. These above are my favorite of the bunch. I really like the abstraction and colors in the last one.

Science Fiction Never Looked So Good

I recently had a post from OMNI magazine from Eric Carl’s collection on flickr. I had have another post of his finds but I couldn’t fit all of it in one post. These book covers are from his Classi Sci-Fi and Fantasy set and contain works form the 1960s to the early 1980s. I absolutely love looking at these because there was so much imagination put into illustrating the covers. It’s like a breath of fresh air looking at these beautiful classic covers compared to the modern-day computer illustrated Sci-Fi covers. On top of that the wear and tear of these books really adds a nice touch on the fact that these books only look better as they age. I checked ebay and you can actually still find copies of these…I really need to pick up a few if not all of them.
