Inspiration: Abstract Woolf Covers
Penguin commissioned Pentagram to design a new series of five of Virginia Woolf’s major works in hardback editions. The dust jackets feature abstract compositions in the spirit of the textile designs of the Omega Workshop. The Workshop was founded by members of the Bloomsbury Group who included Woolf herself, her sister Vanessa Bell, and Duncan Grant. The typography utilises Albertus, designed by Berthold Wolpe, and Gill Sans, designed by Eric Gill, both of whom were British typographers of the period. Awesome!
