The Pushkin Collection was redesigned in 2012, and the spare, elegant series style makes the most of each new book’s specially commissioned cover illustration.
Designed by David Pearson and Clare Skeats, the series has a beautifully crafted arrangement of the modern and traditional which is both confident and accessible (as in, for example, the cover typeface—Johnston, a sans serif which refers, with its classical proportions, directly to inscriptions). The new template is an effective demonstration of design being used to sensitively refine what already existed and what Pushkin’s loyal readers already loved. The addition of the border allows for quite radical illustrations by holding them firmly in place.
