The Art of Sewing is a nice older set that dates back to the early 70's. I haven't read any of these, but I've heard they're pretty good. They are actually cloth bound and one of them is apparently bound in denim, which is pretty neat.
Each volume has the title gilt on the spine and the rest of the cover is a pattern, and some of them are pretty gaudy. Note; these books aren't in the Barnes & Noble database at all and their ISBN numbers aren't in the Alibris database, so I added Amazon.com links and changed the Alibris links to search on title and not ISBN.
