This review is from: Postcards From Penguin: 100 Book Jackets in One Box (Cards)
This box of 100 postcards illustrating a range of Penguin Books paperback covers from the late 1930's up to the 1970's (will a further box of more recent covers appear?) is terrific and effectively offers a museum of design for your own home! The high standards of work maintained by the company and the designers it employed throughout are impressive. It is good to see that, for the most part, the individual designers are identified although the person who devised the original characteristic horizontal white and orange division, the first Production Manager, Edward Young, is not credited as far as I can tell. However later designers and illustrators are named, such as Jan Tschichold, Stephen Russ, Germano Facetti, Romek Marber, Denise York, Alan Spain and Alan Aldridge.
Highly recommended. But which of these great postcards will you ever want to part with?
