企鵝出版的這一系列美食叢書,實在太叫我垂涎了,瞧瞧那秀色外表,就算被說是膚淺也不管,衝著這麼美的封面,未來無論如何得想出個名目來,買下犒賞自己,更何況,精挑美食名作重新出版的內容也是深具內涵的耶! 舊酒裝新瓶的技法,使得實在高明,請來了堪稱是英國設計書封的第一把交椅Coralie Bickford-Smith(好威風八面的工作及職銜啊!)操刀,真是讓人耳目一新,刮目相看啊! 讓經典好書有再次出頭天的機會。

高手出招果然不凡,封面圖案多數靈感來自與書原稿同期出產製作的陶盤器皿圖案,真箇是讓人擊節的巧思,你瞧瞧,可不是光看封面就是很具收藏價值的平面設計了嗎?(顯示不斷為自己找正當催敗理由中,哈哈!不過,剛剛發現連Amazon都不齊了,這。。。是好還是壞呢?)
