Novel(ty) Illustration

29 Aug

I have said it before and I will say it again… I LOVE Ruben Toledo’s illustrations. Toledo has teamed up with Penguin Classic’s to create the fabulous, “couture inspired covers” featured above. I found out about this must have collection via The Daily Candy Weekend Guide. I actually am a little embarrassed to admit that I have not read a single one of these, but certainly plan to now. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be caught on the train reading Pride & Prejudiced with such a fabulous cover as this.

Penguin Classic’s are in my opinion all around chic and fabulous! Check out the newly released cloth bound classics I discovered via Design*Sponge.

Ruben Toledo has always been one of my favorite illustrators, ever since I started collection his Nordstrom ad’s when I was younger. He has such a distinct style that you instantly know a Toledo when you see one. Recently Toledo paired with Vogue Nippon to create these fashion postcards capturing the fabulous moments of the traveling fashionista. With the exception of the Anna Sui, I’m really not a fan of the featured looks, but boy does Toledo make them look good!
