Penguin reinvents it’s book covers

By asking all types of artists to create an original design for a book, Penguin got a lot of responses and created a fresh buzz around readers and artists alike.

No wonder it was for hard for them to choose, the works were really good. I had a hard time choosing some from the 25 finalists.

The book is Sam Taylor’s The island at the end of the world so when choosing the shortlist I left out all the island and water designs.

More designs on the blog.

Update: my favorite design won the competition (the first one below). It belongs to Matt Taylor (no connection to the author), 28 year old artist who previously worked for Burton snowboards, orange, Top Gear Magazine, Microsoft Wired.
