This is good, but I wish higher-resolution photos were available.
Still, there's nearly five hundred books I'd never have a chance to see otherwise.

Oooh! nice. Very nice. Thanks carsonb. I'd like just to add for my own benefit - De Stijl. [adversaria]

Drool...

Yeah, higher res would be nice... even if just a bit, but this site is still going in to my "inspiration" bookmarks :)

Yep, I was a tad dismayed at the resolution of the pictures...but there's just so many! 500 books that feature cool design all in one spot, together to inspire me. Plus, the little stories give googlable names.

Wow, this is a great find.
Is this for real a private collection? (jealous!)
