Baker Street Classics Sherlock Holmes
Baker Street Press were releasing their first range in their Classics Line, aimed primarily at collectors. The Baker Street Classics Sherlock Holmes collection is a retro-inspired full set of Arthur Conan Doyle’s wonderful tales of the inimitable ‘consulting detective’ at work.
Featuring original cover illustrations from editions of the 1920s, this collection will adorn any book-lover’s shelf and transport the reader back in time to Holmes’s bustling Victorian London, the misty moors of Dartmoor, the dizzying heights of Reichenbach and the cosy living room of 221B Baker Street.
With the brief to include the original illustrations the task was to treat them with the respect they deserve whilst giving the books a fresh and interesting look that would attract the eye in a book shop – making them an item to covet and enjoy with a premium feel.
As well as the book jacket design, the case and the patter on the inner pages was also designed to continue to the feeling a tactile high quality item.
