Design by Helen Yentus

Has any book designer had a better 2007 than Helen Yentus? Buy this book from Amazon.com.

This idea has been done to death. Surely there was a more original solution for this cover. I do love her work though.

I don't disagree that we've seen things like this before. But the execution looks flawless...and it's another book-on-a-book cover! :-)

The book pictured is set in all italics.

I have many books that contain page-length (and more) passages set in italics.

It's a fine homage to John Gall. And a bunch of other people.

But a flawless execution of an old idea is still an old idea.

Can we call this trend dead now?

The comment about Helen Yentus in 2007 makes me wish I could search labels by designer.

It may be done- but as a reader without design background- this worked for me. I would pick up the book.
