Penguins

Must... stop... buying... Penguins...

But look at them! How can you resist?


Cover by the incomparable Romek Marber

























drawing by Paul Hogarth. I think this is great.









Cover by Quentin Blake.















I think I've posted this before, but worth posting again I think. Annette swinging from the chandelier, before leaving school forever, to enter the School of Life - genius.

  1. HAve you seen the new Capuchin classics covers? some are fantastic. My favourites are My Name is Aram (http://www.capuchin-classics.co.uk/capuchin/images/booktitle/my%20name%20is%20aram%20cover%20for%20web.jpg) and When I Was Otherwise (http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1328693163l/8899381.jpg).

  2. Beautiful. They look like they are referencing classic old style covers on purpose. I like seeing the changes that cover styles have gone through over time. The 70s and 80s were generally not a good time for cover design.
