I’d like to, if I may, direct your gaze in the direction of a new side project I’ve just put together — biblioteket.me. The site is a very simple archive type blog featuring a bunch of book covers from mine and my girlfriend’s very small (but perfectly formed) library. If you are familiar with my work then you probably know that I have a thing for archiving everything that I’m into, like fonts, records and err… records.
I got the idea while on holiday in Sweden recently (biblioteket is Swedish for “library” just in case you were wondering) as I was looking through my friends bookshelves. I’ve chosen book covers that have an emphasis on simplicity, typography and illustration, there are a few that designery types will already be aware of but there are also quite a lot of book covers there that have probably (well hopefully) not been archived before.
Anyway have a look around, I hope you enjoy the site.
