When cover art is so striking it jumps out at you, it can provide even more motivation to sit down and read. That’s the case with this set, the complete, A-Z collection of Penguin’s award-winning Drop Caps series. This is an absolute must for the bookworm who also has an eye for design. Each colorful hardback edition of classic and modern masterpieces displays a cleverly designed drop cap for the author’s last name; the individual volumes have their own color, style, and personality. Putting them together on a shelf makes for a stunning sight. The series is a collaboration between Jessica Hische, a designer and illustrator whose clients include Wes Anderson, Nike, and the New York Times, and Paul Buckley, Penguin’s creative director.
