Covering Book Design with Coralie Bickford-Smith

 

To say that Coralie Bickford-Smith, Senior Cover Designer at Penguin Books ‘really knows her stuff’ when it comes to book design is a gross understatement. Her covers have earned her awards from numerous prolific organisations, and graced the pages of international magazines and newspapers, The New York Times, Vogue and The Guardian.

In this article, she dives into the history of the medium, shares some hard earned pearls of book design wisdom and calls for a departure from trend-driven work.
