The distinctive three bands and monochrome color scheme of the Penguin paperback cover has had more than its share of design and art world admirers—the painters Harland Miller and Alanna Cavanagh, amongst them. So, perhaps Penguin Library, a new wallpaper motif by Osborne & Little, was simply an interior design inevitability.

Still, for both literary and design aficionados, a roll of Penguin Library is a piece of visual heaven: a collage of front covers that includes the first Penguin paperback (1935′s Ariel), and subsequent classics that represent both the breadth of the publishing company’s titles as well as the subtle design changes made to the original iconography. A pretty impressive book collection, we say.
