Decorating Idea: The Designs of Coralie Bickford Smith

Apr 3
penguin-classics

Last year, when I started my house decorating journey, I decided that I was only going to display hardcover books on my shelves. As I was shopping at Anthropologie, I noticed the most gorgeous collection of classic clothbound books. I had to have them- all of them! When I got home I searched for more information about them, and I discovered that they are all designed by Coralie Bickford Smith, the senior cover designer at Penguin Books. The London-based designer chose Victorian-style clothbinding with stamped patterns dealing with the book’s theme (Waves for Homer’s Odyssey, Flamingoes for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass).
