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’ve seen his work before but it wasn’t until recently that I found out who he actually was. Michael Cina has done work for some of the artists on the Ghostly International Record Label which is where I’ve seen his work. He is also the cofounder of YouWorkForThem and is currently running the Minneapolis, MN studio. I was on his site CargoCollective and I found so much inspiration in his work. The ones above are just a few of my favorites. What draws me most to Cina’s work is the depth and layering of his compositions. His superb typography knowledge and skills are clear in his work as well. He is not afraid to go small the some of the type focusing on the micro-aesthetics.
