Nancy Mitford + Penguin Books + Lab Partners

This post is going to swerve a bit, I hope you're ok with that! It all started with a purchase. I wandered into a bookstore today and wandered out with the classic "the Pursuit of Love" by a Ms. Nancy Mitford. Now, I'd heard of this book but didn't know much about it, and since I'm only a few pages in, it's still a bit of a mystery. Know what I do know about it? It's a Penguin (so it's automatically cool), the cover is pink and yellow and black (my new favorite color combination) and there's a series of 5-books that the amazing Lab Partners has designed. More than enough to make me have to have it. See:
Lab Partners for Nancy Mitford
Obviously I'll be purchasing them all.
But, while I was browsing the Penguin website I couldn't help but notice there are so many great collections of books (with even greater covers) that I wouldn't mind having adorn my book shelves. For example, these two series: Penguin Decades—1960's and Central European Decades. Ok, maybe they sound a bit stuffy, but they couldn't possibly be—look at these gorgeous covers!

BUT I couldn't let the stunning work of Lab Partners themselves go unmentioned in this post. Man oh man do I love the work they've been turning out. You really need to pop over to their site and get better acquainted with them. But take a look at these beauties first:
