As soon as I stumbled across these gorgeous book covers, I knew I had to share them here on the blog.  The Penguin Drop Cap series is a collaboration between Jessica Hische (who has had her work appear in projects like Moonrise Kingdomand Paul Buckley, the VP Executive Creative Director at Penguin. In this series they’ve reinvented classic texts with bright, bold covers and beautiful typography. I think it would be a dream to be able to purchase the entire collection- they would make a wonderful addition to anyone’s library.

Speaking of books, I still need to share my impressions of the books I read last month- look for that post coming soon!
