penguin design your own book cover


The folks at Penguin have come up with what i consider a great idea. They have decided to release a selection of books from their classic range allowing anyone to design their own cover. I was actually quite drawn to the book design as they are quite similar to the original Jan Tschichold design in that they use one colour to differentiate each title although the front cover is completely blank except for the penguin logo. The image above is my cover design for the George Orwell book 'Animal Farm' created from bits of paper and rolls of paint. This promotion is generally open to anyone and i assume that penguin will print out selected covers to conclude this event. if you want to find out more visit
