This cover is so clever. I choice of typeface is nice.

'Jaws' from the Penguin Horror book series by Tom Lenartowicz. Love that the 'A' represents a shark fin. It gives the type so much character.

Flavorwire's compilation of cover designs for '1984' has some gems, including this one for a Swedish edition

George Orwell's 1984: A Visual History

1984 - George Orwell - The most disturbing book I have read lately. With Big Brother always watching, Orwell paints a society that I hope I never have to experience.

how we should all design - cradle to cradle

Cradle To Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things. Book by William McDonough & Michael Braungart. Book printed on YUPO !

This is a completely different take on the popular children's story/movie. The hole on the cover adds depth and draws in our attention into the world of Alice's Adventures Wonderland in a literal sense that the hole is created by a stack of paper.

The Catcher In The Rye Book by J D Salinger

1951 - The Catcher in the Rye by J. Salinger - Fifties youth finds a voice for all the disaffected. The teenager was born.

REWORK is a 'Swiss Army Knife' of work practice. It debunks some work practices that almost seem set in stone.     The authors who have built 'Basecamp' tell you why 'ASAP' is poison, how some meetings can ruin productivity and why you shouldn't get too hung-up on planning.     It's given me some useful approaches to projects, and I'm sure it will give you some! The chapters are bite size chunks so you could easily read it during your downtime.

This is a great book to read. ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever: Jason Fried, David Heinemeier Hansson
