C.S. Lewis Signature Series

Excellent new C.S. Lewis titles from Jason Gabbert of The DesignWorks Group.

Saw one of these in the store today. They’ve got a great tactility. Not much for concept, which is unfortunate considering the fun that Lewis had with visuals and language. Still, a welcome repackaging for a very deserving set of titles. I’m mostly just thrilled to see The Great Divorce as its own stand-alone title. Easily the most “accurate” and engaging portrayal of heaven and hell I’ve read to date.

  1. These really are beautiful. As far as concept goes, I know Jason had some great visual concepts he wanted to use, but the publisher had their own ideas of how to direct the illustrator.

  2. Also, HarperOne released a repackaged series of hardcovers as well, which are handsome. Not sure who the designer was, however. http://www.cslewis.com/bookdetail.aspx?ISBN13=9780061774195

    Hello, please visit my page and listen to the sermons of Scott about Lewis “In His Own

    Words”, they are eye-opening! He quotes him from his own books (and so on), showing who

    he really was. Its very important, you should listen to!
