The Penguin Classics Book


A richly detailed 500-page hardback, cataloguing every Penguin Classic that’s in print today.

The book was designed in a whirlwind three-month period, including time spent in the Penguin Archive photographing near-endless stacks of books.

Densely packed with information, page layouts are based on a twelve-column grid, with colour, typography, photography and layout used to maximum effect to differentiate between different levels of information, making an extremely complex hierarchy effortless to navigate.
