Oh Penguin how I love thee..
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 Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited.Artist: Jim TierneyJim Tierney grew up in Pennsylvania and studied illustration at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
