Description

"Over the last dozen years or so, this pioneering publisher has exploded every notion of what a paperback should look like(...) You can read, study or just ooh and aah at these kaleidoscopic pages."
--Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

"This gorgeous collection of the most recent wave of near-instant-classic Penguin covers is the second-best thing to actually owning the books themselves."
--RedEye

"Cover to Cover, a new book from Penguin Classics, is the closest I can get to looking at pornography in the office."
--Dana Schwartz, The Observer

"Beautiful, strange, dark, simple, and abstract--the covers you'll find in the book run the gamut of styles and creativity...[On Sherlock Holmes: The Novels] Steering away from the usual deerstalker hat and pipe, illustrator Adam Simpson not only created a scene straight out of 1890s London, but he includes little gems tucked in on this wraparound cover that depict an iconic scene from each of the four stories contained within...[On The Penguin Drop Caps] If there is ever a series to make a book lover itch to have them all, it's this one...[On The Pelican Shakespeare series]: These are the freshest and most appealing Shakespeare covers I've personally ever seen. I might've kept my copy of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet from college if they'd looked like these."
--Seira Wilson, Omnivoracious: The Amazon Book Review

"A publishing company that certainly takes pride in its design history, this collection in particular is a delight because it's a recent history that makes it feel both current and timeless; a revamped series that has met with a great deal of well-deserved success. The book does an excellent job of laying out and explaining just how it's managed to do so in such a short amount of time."
--J.M. Suarez, PopMatters

"Edited by Penguin Creative Director Paul Buckley, Classic Penguin: Cover to Cover delivers 288 pages of literary eye candy. Both bibliophiles and design buffs will be enthralled by the book, which features hundreds of stunning covers paired with commentary by the artists. Topped off with gorgeous, inventive layouts by Matt Vee, this tome is a must-have for book lovers."
--Paste Magazine
