{ inspiration :: coralie bickford-smith }

i have always thought that being a book cover designer would be one of the most fun realms of graphic design. it is extremely concept driven, by nature it has to be concise and communicate really well, plus it combines my two loves: reading and design.

one of the most inspiring book cover designers out there is coralie bickford-smith. she is a book cover designer at penguin {dream job!} and has been getting raves over her cloth bound books {which are now available for purchase in the good old usa}. but i am really loving these gothic horror covers she designed. all of her book covers are worth checking out, but i thought these were particularly striking, plus they are very timely for halloween!
