Speaking to the past

I follow Douglas Coupland on Twitter and this morning I checked in to find he has shared a project of his online. He has designed 30 Penguin book covers, celebrating the 75th anniversary of Penguin, but also speaking to those in the past about the world now. The covers made me nostalgic, I remember the orange covers from my childhood, They were a design classic. Coupland’s designs, however, made me both amazed at where we’ve come in those years and sad about where we’ve got to.

Anyway, check his work here and you’ll see what I’m waffling about!
