in that vein, here are a few more of the penguin classic hardcovers. i love these designs because they are simple and elegant. admittedly, the covers are a bit of a gimmick—people like me will be tempted to buy all these books just to beautify their library shelves. no matter how much you love to read, if you've any artistic inclination for book design, you'll consider buying the cover art, regardless of what's inside. in this case, those of us who lust after art and literature equally are in luck.
