VINTAGE WAR

To mark the centenary of the First World War, Vintage is launching a unique collection of war fiction. April 2014 will see the publication of twelve works by the greatest writers of the last century, each tackling this most powerful and universal of subjects.

The series was a collaborative effort by the Vintage Design team. Each cover was designed and hand-painted in-house, with the aim of giving a bold, contemporary look to these war-themed classics.

To celebrate the 65th Cannes Film Festival in 2012, a number of large photographs were hung around the city, including this one of Alfred Hitchcock taken in 1972.
