Disguising stories

This weekend I went down to London.  I don't get to go there very often but I do love it when I do.  Whilst catching up with a friend we stumbled across Persephone Books.

I am trying to research as much about books and typography as possible and I didn't know anywhere like this existed.

Persephone books is a bookshop that prints mainly neglected fiction for women by women.  Each book has an identical plain grey jacket on it.  The stories themselves and the inside covers (which each have a beautifully printed pattern on) are what differentiate the books from each other.

As part of my project, the main focus has been disguising messages in different ways and this visit has inspired me further.

It was a great bit of research and somewhere where I would recommend going to.
