Thanks to the Very Short List, the Observer's newsy site - a daily resource for book related and other minutia - for the tip on Mark Terry's Facsimile Dust Jacket Website.
Mark's service creates and sells facsimiles of vintage book covers for those of us who just can't get enough of these vintage graphic designs. He even has a guy, Andy Moursund, who will make posters out of a cover or covers.
I'm thinking some covers and a poster or two or three would be great in any room in the house of a book and/or art lover. Am I wrong? This is a superb idea and I can't think why no one's ever thought of it before.
All genres, including literature, are available. So if you have a favorite author, favorite book or books - this is a fun way to decorate with great vintage art.
There's nothing like a vintage book cover design to warm a reader's heart on a cold winter's night.
Start thinking Christmas presents. I'll be reminding you about Mark's site when I post my Best Presents for the Book and Film Lover on Your List.
These four covers are facsimiles by Mark Terry.
