Pierre Faucheux and Le Livre de Poche
The Atelier Pierre Faucheux’s output of book covers for the French paperback publisher Livre de poche was prodigious. Yet, for a figure of his stature, Faucheux has received surprisingly little attention and the cover designs of the 1960s and 1970s have tended to be overlooked. The most impressive are fine examples of the interpretative skill, graphic invention, and compressed imaginative intensity that a good cover requires.
Design a Cover for Eno’s Music for Films
LA architect John Bertram’s latest competition, to design an alternative sleeve for Music for Films
by Brian Eno, one of the musician’s less familiar instrumental albums, might be the perfect cover design challenge. The competition requires entrants not to replace something that exists with a better alternative, but to imagine something where the album’s creator apparently wanted there to be almost nothing at all.
