PENGUIN COVERS - ILLUSTRATORS, ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS



INDEX to Illustrators, Artists and Designers of Penguin Covers

AB    CDE    FG    HIJ    KLM    NOPQR    ST    UVWXYZ   



THIS PAGE - Illustrators, Artists and Designers A B






Welcome to our pages with the designers who created the covers of Penguin Books, and the illustrators, artists and photographers whose work was used.

The individuals are listed on the pages in alphabetical order. The image displayed is usually the first item listed - and the entries are in series and number order, i.e. Main Series followed in order from 'A' (Pelicans) to 'Z' (Pelican History of Art). Clicking on the reference numbers will take you to the relevant entry in the website.

Our lists are only of the books for which we have images. The lists will be updated and extended as additional images are added to the site.

Under represented is the work by Edward Young who designed the original Penguin colophon, and the cover with its 3 horizontal bands of colour-white-colour, the quartic in the upper band and the early typography. The principle of the design, which has become iconic, remained for the first two decades although the colophons and typography subtlety changed. Additionally, the immensely influential work of the two Penguin typographers, Jan Tschichold and Hans Schmoller also remains mostly behind the scenes.
