Penguin Classics Hardcover Books
Penguin and their fabulous classic cover re-designs…again!
To the left is an image of two cloth bound series of Classic Literature books released by Penguin in 2008, and designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. The concept behind these covers is pattern design and each cover follows a different geometrical pattern. In turn, every pattern speaks to the novel’s atmosphere, themes, or period that it was written.
Coralie Bickford-Smith’s favourite design: Crime and Punishment (the third last book on the second row, red and beige).
Check out Coralie‘s website for other stunning cover re-designs, or stay tuned to my blog for more of her work coming soon!
See the From the Page to the Life’s Stage tab for a list of titles available in this series.
These books are available in Chapters/Indigo/Coles stores for $12.99.
