Every day,  Eric Baker,  of Manhattan-based design firm Eric Baker Design Associates,  spends 30 minutes before work looking for “images that are beautiful, funny, absurd and inspiring”, and each Saturday he posts his selections to the Design Observer.

Eric’s selections for  14th February were all drawn from a great collection of images that Miguel Oks has posted to Flickr,  including  some amazing sets of 20th Century avant-garde books.

The covers pictured here are by the brilliant Hendrik Werkman (H.N. Werkman)  for the literary typographic journal Next Call , and are taken from the Dutch Books set.

Yale University Press published a lovely book by Alston W. Purvis on Werkman in 2004 as part of their Monographics series.
