By the cover

These are from Housing Works Used Book Cafe's Open Air Book Fair in SoHo a couple weekends ago. $1 each, so they were more like purchases for design research based purely on their covers, though the Turabian writing manual, Othello and The Dud Avocado (apparently, the O.G. Bridget Jones of the 50's and just reissued) are classics. Yen helped me find a couple of these.

I love all the clean lines (especially the stripes), simple color palettes and no-nonsense typography. The writing manual is my favorite. Graphic designers were such pioneers back in the day. It's also no surprise that Constructivism is one of my favorite art movements.
