There's an interesting post here about the production of cover artwork for Faber's reissues of famous poetry collections. Interesting mainly because Faber's covers have come in for some criticism in recent years (some people love the minimalist tendency, others loathe it) – but these are just fabulous. I covet the books even though I already own other editions.

*Worst post title I have ever produced

Brilliant aren't they? I was chuffed to receive a number of the 80th anniversary selecteds as a Christmas gift last year (Yeats selected by Heaney; Auden selected by Fuller; Betjeman selected by Williams), despite already owning copies of most of the poems included. These hardback reissues look great too - Oswald's Dart and Larkin's Whitsun Weddings in particular.
