Most of the time I groan when I see that a designer or artist has a “portfolio coming soon” on their portfolio site. But then I saw Peter Mendelsund interim design and was excited to see more, almost like a JPG teaser trailer. Peter is a book jacket designer who’s body of work is epic to say the least. He’s designed jackets for all kinds of authors from Dostoevsky (which you can see above) to manga god Osamu Tezuka. Hopefully Mr. Mendelsund puts his true portfolio up soon so we can enjoy the full breadth of his work.
In the meantime you can see a ton of his covers over on The Book Cover Archive, in case the image above made you curious.
