Penguin Book Cover Design

Penguin Books is an all too brief Flickr Photoset of Penguin Book cover designs from decades past. For those interested, this book is highly recommended.

Deja vu. I was the first comment in NationalKato's linked thread - at the risk of repeating myself, "Penguin by design" is an awesome book. If you're a Penguinoholic like me, how can you be without?

Cool! I have some of those...and some they don't. My favorite covers of all are by Signet, like this 1984.

I was pleased when I posted the thread linked to by NationalKato that there were other Penguin lovers (so to speak) here - and even more pleased that some more pictures have been dug out. These are great - this is my favorite so far. (Although this one hasn't dated much, either).

On a different note, paging PenguinBukkake, paging PenguinBukkake...

Those are great. I thought I was the only one who loved those retro paperback covers.

What I would love to know is who the artists were. The artists who did these covers were brilliant.

I love the Penguin Classics range; they look great together on bookshelf.

Incidentally, the new Graphics Classics series of Penguin books is spectacular.
