Book cover design can come in all shapes and forms and there's no doubt that Penguin (opens in new tab) is one of the forerunners when it comes to originality. Recently, the publisher asked illustrator Matt Taylor (opens in new tab) to design these stunning covers for it.

Based in the Brighton, Taylor is influenced by Americana inspired illustrations with a nod to the classic comic book art of the '50s and '60s. His previous clients include Adidas, The Guardian, Urban Outfitters, Wired, and Computer Arts magazine.

Being American editions, the books have only been available to buy in America. However, the folks at Penguin UK have decided that the illustrations should be used in the UK too. And rightly so, these covers are stunning!
