Wishful Wednesday 4: Postcards from Penguin: One Hundred Book Covers


Yay, Wishful Wednesday pertama di tahun 2013.
Untuk membuka lembaran baru tahun ini, gue nggak mau minta buku, tapi postcard yang gambarnya cover buku klasik. Sah kan?


Ini deskripsi dari Amazon.com:

This is a collection of 100 postcards, each featuring a different and iconic Penguin book jacket. From classics to crime, here are over seventy years of quintessentially British design in one box. In 1935 Allen Lane stood on a platform at Exeter railway station, looking for a good book for the journey to London. His disappointment at the poor range of paperbacks on offer led him to found Penguin Books. The quality paperback had arrived. Declaring that ‘good design is no more expensive than bad’, Lane was adamant that his Penguin paperbacks should cost no more than a packet of cigarettes, but that they should always look distinctive. Ever since then, from their original – now world-famous – look featuring three bold horizontal stripes, through many different stylish, inventive and iconic cover designs, Penguin’s paperback jackets have been a constantly evolving part of Britain’s culture. And whether they’re for classics, crime, reference or prize-winning novels, they still follow Allen Lane’s original design mantra. Sometimes, you definitely should judge a book by its cover.


Selain bisa dijadikan pembatas buku, potscard keren ini bakalan cantik banget kalo dikasih frame terus dipajang di ruang baca.

Naksir berat, dan harus punya tahun ini.

Selain ngeluarin seri book covers, Penguin juga merilis edisi cover majalah Vogue dan Vanity Fair yang nggak kalah cantik dan elegan.

Yuk, share wishlistmu, sekalian ngumpulin entry untuk Anniversary Giveaway.
