I’ve been staying away from Penguins lately in favor of more obscure publishers, but this one caught my eye. The “cover drawing by John Griffiths” is a little different for them.
Proto-punk typography. And I love the blank back.
Gotta love this. Design: Gips & Danne.
Great typographic cover by Alan Fletcher. Always interesting to find a cool Penguin from prior to their more well-known layout configuration. Oh, and of course, yay overprinting!
Just couldn’t make a version of this without a crazy moire! So click to zoom and check out the detail image. Love the teeny little shapes caught in the trippy spiral. And that tight Microgramma.
At first glance I thought this was new—the constructed type seems so contemporary. A book on Swedish, in English, printed in the Netherlands.
