The cover design of the book builds on the pure lines of the featured design treasures. Spot varnish brings exciting levels to the surface of the book. The color scale of the distinguishing color of the individual books is nicely subdued. The title block, made up of recurring elements, and the product symbols emphasize that the book is part of a series. The content is clearly organized and the typography timeless, which naturally fall in with the theme of design classics. In the high-quality illustration the drop-ins alternating with photographs make for a lively layout.
