Is it wrong that this makes me hungry?

Love love “Missed Connections” - who doesn’t love the idea of finding love in a bookstore?!



Love this love story within a notebook.


One of my favorite things about every new book season is the unveiling of new jackets, and Riverhead’s are stunning.  Know that they look amazing on the screen but they look even better in person!


Trade journal Communication Arts recently featured a spread of Penguin book covers by art directors Helen Yentus and Paul Buckley. You need a subscription to view most of the magazine’s content, but here’s a look at the spread, which includes Riverhead titles The Psychopath Test (read more about its jacket design process here), Fiction Ruined My Family, and The Foreigners. All three were designed under Helen’s direction and came out beautifully. Great work!
