PENGUIN COVERS - ILLUSTRATORS, ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS



INDEX to Illustrators, Artists and Designers of Penguin Covers

THIS PAGE - Illustrators, Artists and Designers U V W X Y Z






Welcome to our pages with over 630 entries of 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 images or the reference numbers will take you to an enlarged image of the cover.

Our lists are not fully comprehensive, but 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.

Book illustrated above left:
'Seven Hundred Pennguins' contains 700 page illustrations of Penguin Book covers, and can be acquired direct from Amazon using this link: Seven Hundred Penguins

Young
Artist: EDWARD ('Teddy') PRESTON YOUNG


Edward Young has a very special place in Penguin book design. It was he who drew the original Penguin colophon or logo, and who also designed the original front cover which survived for much of the first twenty years. He also designed the cover of the Shakespeare 'B' series.
