    Wink’s mark for Target’s Bookmarked is another smart book-centric logo.

    That Saul Bass logo looks suspiciously like double the ConEd logo. Suspicious of the ConEd, not Saul Bass.

    Love the Gotham Books logo. Very elegant and clever. Always the simplest of concepts well executed that work out best.
