Faber Poetry Hardback covers

Here are some of the beautiful hardback covers for Faber's Poetry books. The print quality is very nice indeed, and the endpapers are equally lovely.
Really retro colour and hand-made printmaking used throughout, I may have to buy them after all?
Illustrations are by Charles Shearer, Michael Kirkman, Jonathan Gibb, Sarah Young, Peter Clayton and Ed Kluz. There is a link here to the Faber blog where the designer Miriam Rosenbloom discusses the design process in more detail:
