I've been a fan of Jessica Hische's Daily Drop Cap project since it's beginning. I've even purchased a few prints as wedding gifts for friends. So of course I'm very excited to see her drop cap talent going towards Penguin Classics covers. Match made in book cover heaven.
According to her Twitter, Hische worked with Paul Buckley on the covers and I think they look great so far. Some of the color combinations aren't my favorite but seeing as my lettering talent is near zero, I have slim room to criticize. I can not wait to see the rest of the alphabet.
More wonderful work by Hische
