10 Gorgeous Books with Retro Covers. Groovy, Baby.


I keep coming across books with fantastic, retro cover art – though, given their publication dates, they weren’t retro at the time. I love this kind of art – it reminds me of The Jetsons, and Eames furniture, and most of the decor I remember seeing in episodes of The Brady Bunch. They’re a pleasure to look at. I love the Asbestos book, too.
