Seven Hundred Penguins

We picked this book up earlier in the week. A fabulous collection of seven hundred Penguin book covers from Britain and around the world, celebrating the different penguin styles from over the years. Designed by David Pearson it employs a simple approach of illustrating 1 cover on each page.

I have picked out a few of my personal favourites.

Face to Face - 1970, designed by Grant Grimbly

In Cold Blood - 1970, designed by David Pelham

Brain Damage and the Mind - 1973, designed by Omnific/Philip Thompson

Killer in the Rain - 1966, photograph by Bob Brooks

The Catcher in the Rye - 1970

There's another 695 inspiring covers to look at in this visual feast, definitely a must have for the book shelf.
