Thanks for your observations. The Les Jardin bookbinding was done by the famous Pierre Legrain - a genius and artist of the highest degree in the book world.

this is one of my favourite threads, and when I bought two gorgeously designed Penguin books of poetry yesterday I immediately thought to share them here!

Sorry for the shoddy photos - I don't have a camera or a scanner so had to use Photobooth



That's the Metaphysical Poets, published 1966. I love the print!!



The Penguin Book of Modern American Verse, 1955. I tried to take off the price tage but it started to damage the cover so I left it
