Harper Perennial Olive Editions

Design and illustration by Milan Bozic

A just-published series from Harper Perennial. I found two at Borders (Kundera and Foer) but haven't seen the Chabon in person. Here's hoping that more are on the way: these are sturdy little volumes that retail for $10.

I like the Kundera, but not the other two. REALLY dislike the Chabon.

The whole series is great! Applause!

My problems are with the selection of books--they should be books that people won't mind having multiple editions of... although I genuinely liked the book, one purchase is enough for Everything Is Illuminated.

Good spines! it really makes a difference: to stand out in the shelf & unify the series.

Wow. Fucking brilliant... What a very original approach.

I like them a lot - as designs, as clever artwork, for their clear series identity . . . still, I am rarely inclined to buy a book where the title and author take second billing to the series.

Just TEN dollars?! How did they do that? Must own.
