Penguin Book Cover



Last year I was commissioned to illustrate a cover for the Vladimir Nabokov novel Bend Sinister. It is one of a series of Nabokov covers that have been re-released by Penguin. Pentagram designed the layout and background pattern for each book and a different illustrator was asked to illustrate each one. Here is the cover for Bend Sinister, which was released last week.

That's really incredible, congratulations. It looks very nice.

It's one of my dreams to do a Penguin Classic, it seems very appealing to be responsible for the cover of such a book. It would go from book stores, to people's homes, a gift, lent about, to op shops and who knows where. It is really a very exciting idea, I say.

I love that cover. But aren’t those bends rather than bends sinister? On reflection maybe not.
