judge a book by its cover

polish literature has a long-standing tradition of using unique, alternative and often intricate designs for book covers. (probably) originating from the avant-garde style of constructivism, as imposed upon society by the propaganda of the soviet union, artists pushed the boundaries beyond political constraints and created something as significant as the words within.

with the release of ‘1000 polish book covers’, a competition was held to redesign more recent books, based on the polish tradition, but from a more modern creative perspective. some of the results are pretty amazing. - Originals - New Designs
