"Penguin Books is a publisher founded in 1935 by Sir Allen Lane. Penguin revolutionised publishing in the 1930s through its high quality, inexpensive paperbacks, sold through Woolworths and other high street stores for sixpence. Penguin's success demonstrated that large audiences existed for serious books. Penguin Books is now the flagship imprint of the worldwide Penguin Group and is owned by Pearson PLC."

I love Penguin Classics; book range, bag range, cup range, notebook range and any other range with that iconic orange and creme strip. The simplicitiy of the book design, once placed on something else gives that object such a calm, beautiful and serene quality. Also makes it quite desirable for myself. Ho hum, how I wish everything was Penguin covered!
The pictures above was taken when we borrowed this lovely, original penguin book from our friend Thu. Thu is so kind and caring (and probably doesn't know until now, we took pictures with her book!) If you ever need a book, go to Thu and she can recommend one in a second!
