It was a surprise this morning to see a press release in my inbox about the Penguin books' involvement in the Bravo reality tv show "Work of Art." Can you remember another time when a cable network hosted an episode dedicated to book cover design? Since the show is about art, not design, it will be interesting to see the outcome and the critique from the judges. Tune in to Bravo at 10pm on Wednesday, June 23rd.

excerpt from press release from Penguin: “The Book Challenge,” episode three of the new creative series on Bravo, “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist,” will air on Wednesday, June 23rd. In this episode the twelve remaining artists are challenged to design the cover for a Penguin Book. The winning design will be unveiled that evening..."

Design Observer
will be live tweeting the unusual show and is collecting comments on their site.
