History Of Graphic Design

I was assigned Penguin Books, which is actually a publishing company but is very well known for it’s cover art. On their 75th anniversary, they released a book calledPenguin 75. This book is basically a compilation of 75 book covers chosen by their art director, Paul Buckley. He chose the covers that best represented the company and it’s legacy. It tells the stories behind the covers such as why they were chosen. It also features commentary by the designers.
