Penguin Classics team up with (RED) for typographic covers

These book covers from Penguin are simply stunning - they work well as a set, yet retain their own identities and I love the way the designs creep out onto the lower banner.

It's a collaboration between Penguin and AIDS awareness fund (RED) and a team of designers to produce new covers for eight Penguin Classics. Each cover replaces the usual black band with red, employing a quote from the text of the book as the visual hit.

Wonderful work as ever from Penguin.
