Penguin by Hand Series

Penguin seems to be a publisher that isn’t afraid to be innovative with its designs. I’ve loved a lot of their designs before – Penguin Threads & Puffin Chalk are the two that first come to mind – but they’ve really outdone themselves with their Penguin by Hand series. They’ve taken six books by female authors and asked six artists to come up with designs using different media, which has then be reproduced as a paperback cover.

You can get an in depth look at the process behind creating each cover over at Penguin’s blog.I think my favourite covers are The Help and The Jane Austen Book Club, what’s yours?
