The BIG BOOK of BIG LITTLE BOOKS
by Bill Borden with Steve Posner
The Big Book of Big Little Books highlights the author’s extensive collection of Big Little Books that spans the greater part of the 20th century. The appeal of these fat little books lies in their unique size, fascinating art and the well-loved, well-used quality so many of them have. We highlighted these charms by showing full spreads, close-up details of time-worn texture, and mimicking the (often bad) type layouts. Much of the art from the books is already so fantastic that our biggest design decision was knowing when to stop designing and just show the art.
