Very nice book cover via Grain Edit.
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.
Not completely sure of the details but I am assuming it’s this book: "Henrion, F.H.K. Top Graphic Design, ABC Edition, Zurich 1983."

A nice plate from Owen Jone’s 1856 "The Grammar of Ornament". I really like this original version best; I have the new version which is not quite as vibrant. I hear there is a "professional artist" edition on CD-ROM which is supposed to be truer to the original.

Here’s another version of the CBC Annual Report that I posted on a while back. I like the colors of this one more and the nice border and info panel add to the poster vibe. Not sure which is more loyal to the original, but as I said in the original post, I thought a more muted palette would serve it well, and here it is.
Not a lot of info on this one. Looks like Trade Gothic Bold Extended for the logo, very nice.
