I love the simplicity and bold communication behind this series. Each book has its own distinct visual, but also a very strong visual cohesiveness. Helen Yentus, the designer, stated that she wanted to “reflect the time when these books were written but also to hold on to a contemporary aesthetic that hopefully won’t feel dated in a few years.” These do have a sustainable vintage appeal to them.
