Reader's Digest Book Cover Design

Bit of a random one but this week I have been admiring Reader's Digest Condensed Book covers!!

I realise these are considered really uncool, but I rather like the geometric designs in gold. I collected loads for our wedding to use as table decorations and they looked great - it fitted the theme as I used lots of book paper for flowers and confetti and in the evening the gold catching the candle light was lovely.

So I decided to make a record of my favourite designs (before they go back to the charity shop!)

These were all designed by Jeffrey Matthews in the 1970's & 80's.
