Book Worship

Posted by Alex

I’ve been enjoying the terrific blog Book Worship recently. The images above are some of the many beautiful books that Shawn Hazen has collected. As I’ve mentioned before, I have never had very good luck combing used bookstores in San Francisco — most of the cool stuff seems particularly adept at hiding from me (that or it’s long gone from the troves of other SF designers looking for the same things). Shawn, as you see, is much better at this than I. Definitely going to keep checking back often for more posts about these books he describes as “…graphically interesting, but otherwise uncollectible, books that entered and exited bookstores quietly in the 50s, 60s, and 70s.”

I’m diggin these.. There’s alot of inspiration in old books, sometimes you get lucky and wander into that hidden antique/thrift store that hasn’t been scoured by other design folk. I’m sure I’ll be visiting this blog regularly, thanks for the post!
