Penguin Essentials

It’s great to see the extent of Penguin’s commitment to design as they continue to release new series; the latest being Penguin Essentials. This time around, the aim was to repackage each title as a contemporary story through the work of a wide range of artists and designers. More details about why they chose to go in this direction can be found on Penguin’s blog.

And if you like what you see, Penguin is also holding a contest to win the entire set of Penguin Essentials, which includes twenty of the 20th century’s most important stories. Take your chances and enter here. Editor’s note: It was just brought to my attention that you need to be a UK resident to be eligible for the prize. Unfortunately I didn’t notice that caveat when I first spotted the contestapologies!
