Book cover of the week

To make up for the abscence of this entry last week here's two fantastic covers from Penguin/Pelican. I've always had a bit of a thing for the old Pelican blue series, that tended to cover a wide range of educational topics such as mathematics, sociology, psychology, and architecture. There's something about the way this series is designed that makes the name of the author almost irrelevant in relation to the overriding theme of the book. There is never too much going on on these covers, they use a lot of nice black and white photography and capture the spirit of the time pretty well. Lovely bold and simple font, and a great juxtaposition on the over on the Mythology anthology between ancient myths and modern day ones.
