Postcards from Penguin
A boxed set of postcards, depicting 100 iconic Penguin Classic paperback bookcovers.
The collection states: "In 1935 Allen Lane stood on a platform at Exeter railway station, looking for a good book for the journey to London. His disappointment at the poor range of paperbacks on offer led him to found Penguin Books. The quality paperback had arrived."
Declaring that 'good design is no more expensive than bad', Lane was adamant that his Penguin paperbacks should cost no more than a packet of cigarettes, but that they should always look distinctive. Those distinctive covers are known around the world.
This set is the perfect gift for readers, writers and graphic designers.
