HarperCollins UK Perennial Collection by Petra Borner

Last month, HarperCollins UK launched The Perennial Collection, a new series of modern classics for which Petra Borner has designed a series of brilliant covers. Presumably, all of the lush vegetation is a reference to the horticultural meaning of the word perennial.

The coolest thing about these designs is that they are actually one big illustration that was then divided up into fifteen different book covers, as seen in this example (click for a much larger format):

The idea is clever, and the covers are beautiful. I love it! If only they were available in Canada…
