The Jacket Museum

Damn good jackets since 2007

Now has come the time for closure, at least for the time being, of the Museum. They have been more than four years posting regularly and although I am a bit saddened about it, I want to explore other things.
I would like to thank all of you that have followed up on the blog all this time, the ones that have have participated, commented and contribute sending entries for posting.
On my website, I have opened a section were you see on a single glance all the entries posted since October, 2007. It can be visited following this link.
To stay up to date with editorial design I recommend visiting Booketing, one of the few blogs still active and The Casual Optimist, to the best of my knowledge is the best website on books and their design.
My contact mailbox still open: elotrolopez[at]yahoo[dot]es
Good bye for now,
