I've been thinking lately about publisher's logos. It's that thing where you don't really pay attention to the logo on the spine of the book you're reading--you don't really care who published it, the same way you don't care what studio made the movie you go to see. But once you start looking, all sorts of interesting visual tropes turn out to be in evidence.

This is hardly an exhaustive catalog --mostly drawn just from what I've been reading lately--largely fiction, some publishers and some imprints, some current logos and some old ones. Another week, I'll do art book logos.
