The Brilliance of Bickford-Smith

Like many, I've also been inspired lately by the work of Penguin's Coralie Bickford-Smith, who's work continues to impress just about everyone. Being a fan of retro-inspired design, I naturally love the work she has done for the Classic Boys Adventures Series and their new range of hard-bound classics. This in-depth interview on design:related provides some great insights into her work, as well as how she got started. Her comments on her early career inspirations, like Quadrille's Tricia Guild books and her current projects involving textile design are reflected in the latest hard bound classic covers-which, when placed together, remind me of colorful bolts of printed cloth found in a fabric store. Simply brilliant.
