Penguin Paperback Cover Post Cards

I've been going crazy for old book covers lately and these postcards from old Penguin paperbacks feed right into that obsession. They come 100 in a box and as you can see they are great fun.

The inside cover of the box tells the story of how Penguin books was founded when Allen Lane stood in a railway station and didn't have anything to read. I wish I could take photos of all 100 to show you, but I think you might just have to go buy a box yourself. 


  1. @Brooke - they are really fun to send as well.

  2. @Kim - you can get them here directly from Penguin:,,9780141044668,00.html

    They also have other items decorated with the old cover art.
