Daily Covet: Classic books in cute outfits!

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  Isn’t that how the old adage goes?

Well, you’ll want to judge these classic books by their book jackets.  Juniper Books LLC features these beautiful covers, designed by Daniela Jaglenka Terrazini.  Each Puffin classic book is wrapped in a bold new design that I would love to have in my “library!”

Love Sherlock Holmes?  They’ve got those too!
You can also judge some cook books by their covers and even my favorite, a J.D. Salinger collection.  Your bookshelves would be so cute!

On the edge…

There is the edge of sanity.  The edge of time.  And of course, Pink Floyd’s “Edge of Darkness.”

But this house is really on the edge!

Not to worry, it meets California’s earthquake codes and can withstand winds of up to 100 mph.  It’s also permanently attached to the rooftop of UC San Diego’s engineering building.

I’m not sure about you, but I’d be on the edge of my seat watching someone stand in it or walk under it!

A Walk In The Clouds At The Met

A Walk In The Clouds At The Met.

Even more unique than some of the “fashion” (courtesy of the LA Times blog) at the most recent MET Gala, is this rooftop installation by Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno. This work of art is perched atop the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and offers amazing views of the city.  Check out more of the stunning photos at www.whatwelikenyc.com.

This is definitely going on my must-visit list!
