High standards in art and design have always been part of Penguin's publishing program. Now, on the occasion of Penguin's 75th anniversary, longtime art director Paul Buckley has chosen seventy-five covers that represent the best of what Penguin has produced over the course of the last decade. Giving readers a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the complex creation of a book's cover, "Penguin 75" includes comments from authors, agents, and editors, as well as the designers and artists themselves. This witty and irreverent journey into the book world will appeal to lovers of art, design, and, of course, books. This book is presented with contributions by: Paul Auster; Tara McPherson; Daniel Clowes; David Byrne; Elizabeth Gilbert; Joe Sacco; Tana French; T.C. Boyle; Seth; Tom Gauld; William T. Vollmann; Art Spiegelman; Kim Edwards; Melissa Bank; Ruben Toledo; Tomer Hanuka; Jamie Keenan; Roz Chast; Garrison Keillor; Yoshihiro Tatsumi; Sam Weber; Paul Sahre; Tony Millionaire; Nicholas Blechman; Jon Gray; and, many others.
