It’s Thanksgiving, which means you’re already two weeks behind on your Christmas shopping (kidding…kind of). Finding the perfect gift can be difficult, but we’ve got something to highlight today that every cinephile will love. The wonderful folks at The Criterion Collection have released a coffee-table book called Criterion Designs that showcases the gorgeous artwork that has donned the Criterion covers for three decades. The book not only features a gallery of every Criterion cover since the collection’s first laserdisc in 1984, but it also offers up supplemental art and never-before-seen sketches for the unique designs that grace each Criterion. Seriously, this thing is fantastic.
Check out some preview images of the book (along with a full list of artists) after the jump and click here to purchase the newly released hardcover for $71.21.
