A year ago we published 19 Penguin Essentials – seminal books with new, contemporary covers to remind us why we loved them when they were first published and ever since. At the beginning of April we are publishing another 11 Essentials to round out at an even 30 titles. To celebrate we’re going to countdown with a beautiful cover a day - today’s is Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle.Artist: ParraParra is a self-taught artist and illustrator whose work has been exhibited all over the world.
