Penguin Decades

Penguin Decades

Penguin are celebrating 75 years of publishing with the Penguin Decades series. They've re-issued key novels from the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s which they claim 'helped shape modern Britain' and define the period they were released. 

Each decade's books are given a distinct look with the work of a different artist. The 1950s all have covers designed by Peter Blake – including the version of From Russia with Love shown above – while the selected books from the 60s, such as A Clockwork Orange and A Kestral for a Knave, feature the artwork of Allen Jones. 

Zandra Rhodes' patterns grace the cover of the selected books from the 70s, while John Squire tackles the 80s. 

The books cost £7.19 each, a reasonable price for a nice bit of design and a meaty read.
