Coralie Bickford-Smith

A Series Woman
Posted by Gestalten—05/2013

As an in-house designer of Penguin Books, Coralie Bickford-Smith creates incredible designs for popular book series that have attracted worldwide attention. Working with sumptuous materials and Victorian binding, she has infused classic book covers with modern inspiration. Her works—introduced in Gestalten’s Fully Booked: Ink on Paper—recall the golden age of bookmakers’ craft. In our Gestalten.tv interview, Coralie Bickford-Smith talks about the process of book design and the significant role of research, how she got struck by the book of love at a very early age, and why the best in book design is yet to come.
