The Penguin Orange Collection; a limited-edition run of twelve influential and beloved Penguin Classics dressed in the iconic Penguin tri-band covers, with a touch of modern Deluxe design
For the 70th anniversary of Penguin Classics, we present the Penguin Orange Collection, celebrating the heritage of Penguinâ€™s iconic book design and twelve influential American literary classics from the breadth and diversity of the Penguin Classics library. These collectible anniversary editions are published in the iconic orange and white tri-band book design, first created in 1935. The modern touch of French flaps signals the signature deluxe design treatment for Penguin Classics today.
Frequently imitated and widely influential, Howard Phillips Lovecraft reinvented the horror genre in the twentieth century, discarding ghosts and witches and envisioning instead mankind as a tiny outpost of dwindling sanity in a chaotic and malevolent universe. This definitive edition reveals the development of Lovecraftâ€™s mesmerizing narrative style and establishes him as a canonicalâ€”and visionaryâ€”American writer.
