The Curious Case of 221B


This one has a minimalist treatment with a dye cut in the middle part through which the shadow of Holmes and Watson creep through. The background has also got a special treatment with a silvery shade. One of the books best seen when taken in and felt by hand. I hope the Harper guys do a great production job as they had done in Arzee. I am curious to see this one once it is out.

This is indeed a beautiful design. I'd picked up this book from a shelf at a bookstore coz the cover page caught my attention. But I had to put it back as I was falling short of cash and I thought I could always buy it later. Today I walked into the bookstore to buy that book but I couldn't recollect either the title or the author's name. I described the cover page to the shopkeeper and he found the book for me. :)
