I’ve always been a fan of Kate Spade’s fun, cheerful color combinations and her sort of “hip debutante” style.  Apparently, Ms. Spade also shares my love for graphically interesting and/or vintage book and magazine covers. She’s offering some cool, free downloads on her website (click on “downloads”) that can be used as desktop wallpaper AND, I love this, a tutorial for how to turn the print-outs into book covers. Now you can cover your trashiest checkout-line paperbacks or young adult novels with images of much hipper works and get away with reading them in public without being snickered at by strangers…
