Designer Classics

My translations of Crime and Punishment and The Idiot are among five titles chosen for recovering by design artists to celebrate Penguin’s 60th anniversary. The others in the series are Geoffrey Wall’s translation of Madame Bovary, Tender Is The Night, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Crime and Punishment is designed by Fuel, and The Idiot by Ron Arad.

Madame Bovary is designed by Manolo Blahnik, Tender Is The Night by Sam Taylor-Wood, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover by Paul Smith.

The books are published in limited editions of 1000 copies each, and come in a hard perspex case.
