For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the term, a ‘cover bomb’ is an artwork, drawn by hand, directly on top of an original book cover.
Collector’s Edition: Innovative Packaging and Graphics is a new book by Stuart Tolley, published by Thames and Hudson and released back in August of this year. The book is a visual survey, which brings together 180 examples of innovative graphic and product design created for special collector, limited or deluxe editions.
Stuart invited 10 globally recognised musicians, artists and designers to draw directly onto the cover of Collector’s Edition. Contributors include; Paul McCartney, Nick Cave, Wayne Coyne, Stanley Donwood, Peter Gabriel, Oliver Jeffers, Robert ‘3D’ Del Naja, Alec Soth, Jessica Hische and The Designers Republic.
These unique hand drawn 'artist cover bomb' edition books are, in essence, the collector’s editions of Collector’s Edition and are currently live at online auction raising funds for The Alzheimers Society.
The online auction runs until the 12th December HERE... Happy Bidding!
