If you were to judge a book by its cover, each of these would win the Pulitzer. AIGA Design Archive, which has been cataloging great design since the ’20s, teamed up with Design Observer to crown the best designed books of last year. Two lists were released. One of the lists includes the 50 best designed book covers, and the other shares the picks for the best designed books. Some of our favorites include Classic Penguin: Cover to Cover, Draplin Design Co. Pretty Much Everything, Looking Good: A Visual Guide to the Nun’s Habit, Lanoe Wyman: The Monograph, and My Father, The Pornographer. Take a look through the picks and maybe select out a few to make one good-looking bookcase display.
Your morning routine is begging for Parachute’s towels. What makes them different? Well, Parachute uses an innovative process called Aerocotton Technology, which blows air through the cotton fibers as they’re spun. That means extra fluffy towels that dry quickly. Plus, the towels are made exclusively from premium long-staple Egyptian cotton, which is the best around. Soft, absorbent, and quick-drying—Parachute’s towels offer everything you want. Your new favorite part of a long, hot shower? Drying off.
