Some really nice modernist book covers featured over at Defunkt. I love this style of illustration, Mike Mills took a similar tact for the Beastie Boys Stereo Speaker poster. And of course, you really can’t lose with Trade Gothic.

Wauw! I love the fact that the buttons are sometimes varied – that some of them pop out in a different color. That really makes the graphic all the more interesting I think.
Wicked stuff as usual :) A pleasure for the eye.

Very cool– I look at them as a combination of relatively simple shapes, a pictogram. Creating these is not hard in practice, the challenge comes when youre trying to think of an object in terms of its simplest possible features without losing its recognizability.

These are gorgeous. Think YES studio like them too:

Urban Outfitters are selling t-shirts with a design very similar to the top poster. Interesting how design comes full circle.
