Picked up a cheap copy of F.Scott Fitzgerald ‘On Booze‘ awhile ago in Hodges Figgis‘s January sale. Still haven’t read it as I am currently buried under an avalance of post-Christmas reading (currently reading Black Swan and Conversations with Billy Wilder while skimming through Things I have learned in my life so far) but I really like the linen-textured hardcover design which led me to look up the cover designer, which I did not succeed in finding, and this led me to finding the covers that Coralie Bickford-Smith designed for a Penguin Classics collection of F.Scott Fitzgerald books. I love the minimalist opulence conjured by the geometric, art deco-inflected patterns printed in decadent metallic inks. So appropriate to his style of writing, pared down yet totally evocative.
All of her work is worth looking at, see more of it on her site.
