Find classic covers of your favourite Penguin books, or explore contemporary designs created by award-winning designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, each featuring a motif or image inspired by the book. Bearing the hallmark of Penguins celebrated design aesthetic, there is a cover to suit everyone in this iconic collection.
