    Linda Huang: An Enlarged Heart (detail)

Graphic Design: Unusual book jackets by the very talented Linda Huang

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Some lovely book design here from Brooklyn-based designer Linda Huang, whose love for the hand-drawn breathes fresh air into the titles she works on, making them incredibly desirable. The book that really won us over was her work for The Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, which she made by spreading thick lines of ink vertically down the cover to create stripes that are at once leafy and plant-like, while still resembling juicy spines of books. Very nice! Linda currently designs at the wonderful publishers Knopf and Pantheon Books and is also freelancing in her spare time.
