I’m sure I’m not alone in having many fond memories of reading Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene, and VS Naipaul novels in Penguin paperback editions. The penguin or puffin on the spine of a paperback usually augured well. Finding a Penguin on the shelf of a used bookstore promised a great read for just fifty cents.
In a delightful tribute to a classic version of Penguin’s covers, Art Meets Matter has issued a Penguin-inspired pencil.
The clever packaging and pencil designs convey the design and spirit of the paperbacks.
