I mentioned Pushkin Press‘s ‘Found on the Shelves’ series earlier this year. The books celebrate 175 years of The London Library, and four more are coming out this month. The entire series has covers designed by David Pearson and, I’m happy to say, three of the new ones — The Right to Fly, Through a Glass Lightly, and Hints on Etiquette — have wonderful cover illustrations by Joe McLaren as well David’s (brilliant) trademark typography:

McLaren also provided illustrations for the covers of On Corpulence and Life in a Bustletwo earlier books in the series (also designed by David needless to say):
