Postcards from Penguin
Inside the cover is a short message of how Penguin books came into being. It tells the story of Allen Lane who was looking for a good book to read on the train. He felt that a good book should be affordable, but should also look good and distinctive. The final line of the message says: "Sometimes, you definitely should judge a book by its cover."
Below I have posted pics of a few of the postcards that jumped out at me. I can't wait to start sending these out to my bookish friends. Don't you just wish that one of these would land in your mail box. Leave a comment and you never know, maybe one will.
