The 20 irrefutable theories of book cover design” from the Edinburgh Book Festival (via Bruce Mau Design).

11. Unheimlich theory

This theory takes a familiar image or symbol and makes it strange or unsettling. One cover of Lolita uses the image of a girl’s bedroom wall to represent a girl’s legs and underwear.

This beautiful library by Li Xiaodong Atelier is nestled in the small village of Huairou in China. Its interior features plenty of cozy nooks and crannies to read in and great care was taken with the exterior to make sure that it would blend with its natural surroundings. I really want to hang out there even though I can’t read a word of Chinese. They’ve gotta have some picture books, don’t they?
