the big sleep book cover design inspiration

A great cover design for The Big Sleep, by Steve Panton, recently awarded 2nd place in the Penguin Design Awards, designed to replicate the aesthetics of a vintage matchbox, complete with a brilliant striker spine.

Steve also designed an alternative special ‘push sleeve’ edition of the cover, featuring a scorched box of burnt out matches, save for one, which represents the¬†character Philip Marlowe.

Great work, I love it!
