I’m not sure if this will be the most obvious tip in the world or something that some people never thought of, but I wanted to share one of my favorite quick design tips today. Here it is: peek under book jackets! Often the cover and spine are different from the book jacket, and sometimes they’re really pretty or creative. Here are a few of my favorite examples:
Removing Book Jackets:
Kate Spade: Things We Love – an almost blindingly neon pink cover with gold lettering – love it!
The Gardens of Bunny Mellon – the prettiest garden image that wraps around the back and spine. What I wouldn’t give to be walking around that garden right now! (I’m over winter, if you couldn’t tell).
India Hicks: A Slice of England – India Hicks’ book has the loveliest, palest pink underneath the jacket.
Celerie Kemble: Black and White (And a Bit in Between) – a gorgeous, chic marble effect for Celerie Kemble’s classic coffee table book.
Hope this little tip was helpful for anyone looking to switch up the look of their bookshelf a bit!
