You'll be pleased to hear that for once I'm not wittering on about the merits of e-books versus tree-books (well, maybes a little bit) but rather the old-look Penguin English Library versus the new-look Penguin English Library.
To celebrate the launch of the Penguin English Library, this video was commissioned from award-winning director Woof Wan-Bau.
How ironic that the endeavour to bring back the Penguin English Library is in part, part of Penguin's fightback against the growing culture of literary downloads.
Originally with 150 titles in the series, the books were not just ultra cheap but, unlike many other dust jackets that were dull and colourless, had vivid covers. Now, more than 25 years after the series came to an end, Penguin has re-released its PEL books with a set of 100 beautifully designed, abstract covers featuring the work of Coralie Bickford-Smith.
So, which cover do you prefer ..... the 1960's edition pictured left OR the new 2012 edition pictured right?
I'm pleased to announce that since I first drafted this post some time ago Penguin have announced the complete list of books to be released as the Penguin English Library (Click HERE to view).
