particularly pretty penguins pt. 4

I've been feeling a bit green lately, but haven't done much about it. When I say green I don't mean the fact that I'm a vegetarian, or that I try to be environmentally friendly as much as I can, or that I'm envious of someone, I mean the colour green.
That I want to dress in green, and surround myself with green stuff, which I haven't really done that much. So I thought I'd take this opportunity and spread some love of Penguin Classics Covers yet again, this time around: the great ideas series in green. I saw some of these books on the book fair in Gothenburg, and man do they look great! Not only is the design great, but the printing is immaculate too. Not that I would expect anything less when it comes to Penguin (and no, I'm not sponsored by them, although I wouldn't say no if they asked).

How about that lot? I wish I could wear these covers as clothes. I bet they would look good on me.

Speaking of looks, I'm not quite done with the blog makeover, but will leave it like this for now anyway. Hope you can live with it. Otherwise think of a way I can compensate you for it. Maybe another giveaway soonish? Something graphic? Hm, I'll have to think about that for a bit.

These are great, did you take a photo of each or buy and scan? Or are they just on the Penquin book site that I never visited?
However you did it, thanks for the trendy design update..

Monica, you can find them all on the Penguin Classics website, which I'm addicted to! Just follow the links from here, or keep checking in cos I will definitely keep posting more of these lovelies!
