— Love Is Strange

A simple but strangely beguiling poster for the new John Lithgow movie Love Is Strange.


I know nothing about the film, but there’s something about this poster that makes me want to know more.


I love the layout and the typography on the cover of the latest issue of WIRED magazine.

Just bumped into (online) this lovely book cover for William Faulkner’s magnificent ‘As I Lay Dying’.


I may have to track down which country this version is published in and order it.
