It’s starting to heat up here in the Northern Hemisphere. Time to toss those jackets aside!


Taking our cue from the sunshine and warm weather, here are a few of our favorite books that have hidden hardcover sexiness. Now…take off those jackets and toss them aside!

Blackie Books:
Mi amigo libro


This sweet children’s book used the case and jacket art to create a character out of the whole book.

Home by Novogratz


The case and jacket for this home and design book, by design duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz (stars of HGTV's Home by Novogratz), incorporated the concept of mixing and matching design elements to create a vintage modern style. We say they NAILED IT!

Chronicle Books:
Love Hotels


You would never know based on the jacket art that the case of this book is a sleek and modern work of art! Spot UV is applied in a block pattern to add dimension and touch of class. 

Princeton Architectural Press:
Paula Scher Maps


This title highlights renowned artist and designer Paula Scher’s Maps series. While the jacket features a busy detail of one of her paintings, the case balances the overall look by focusing in on a single, yet bright, pantone color. 

Carin Press:
Reflections of a Man


Check out this collection of photographs from Stanley Marcus, one of the founders of Neiman Marcus. We love the French fold jacket, but we ADORE the simple silver foil case that carries over that idea of a mirror from the jacket.


Inspired? We hope so! Let us know how we can help bring your project to life.

And the award goes to....
