I came across this site too late for the design process but i think its a fascinating site and the author of the site is doing important work in scanning and cataloging vintage dust jackets, as they’re usually the first things to get lost, important parts of publishing and book design history are disappearing forever, and while contemporary books wont have this problem due to mass production and the ability to store all these designs digitally i think the fact that this site is more than likely the only record of these beautiful pieces of art makes it an important source for designers and anyone with an interest in history or publishing.
