We are all familiar with the classic penguin cover. And here is a book about the penguin books. David Pearson designed this book cover using the spine of Penguin books to build the classic cover. It is a cool way to present a book talking about the iconic Penguin books and their history. The design is so iconic that even without a obvious “penguin” on the cover, everyone know it is a book about Penguin books at their first sight.

I like this book cover it features the silhouette of Lincoln in a nice way. The purple background adds some color to the design without distracting the black and white contrast between the shadow and the type. The type is articulated in such a way that it forms part of Lincoln’s face. This book cover is interesting and pleasing to the eye.

David Pearson is an awesome designer and typographer. There are a lot of brilliant typography treatments in his designs. We will look at his other designs in the future.
