Episode 11: Penguin
This month, the Poster Boys look back at 45 years of design history at Penguin Books. From the company’s early years under the direction of typographer Jan Tschichold all the way to the end of the 1970’s with art director David Pelham, the prominent UK publishing house maintained a reliable brand identity underscored by countless striking book covers. Inspired by one such design, the boys also take their monthly dip into the Flat File to look more closely at the poster artwork for Stanley Kubrick’s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
