Penguin’s Magnum Collection

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

Steve Hare alerts us to the recently published Penguin editions of six classic non-fiction texts, each using a rare image from the Magnum archives as a wraparound cover. The design sees the barcode and title/author information placed on the spine – a removable sticker ensuring that the cover image remains as powerful as possible…

“Our starting point was trying to dress six classic works of American reportage in cutting-edge design that properly reflected their style and substance, to bring them to the attention of a whole new readership,” writes Michael Joseph Non-Fiction Publishing Director, Rowland White, on Penguin’s website. 

 “When that became a collaboration with Magnum, it suddenly was impossible to imagine doing it any other way. The Penguin Magnum Collection was a partnership that immediately felt right.”

All six editions are out now (see, here, for the listing on the Penguin website).
