Freebie Download: Penguin Book Inspired Mini Posters

I don't consider myself a particularily avid trend watcher but I'd have to be blind to miss the Penguin book cover art gracing the walls of some super stylish homes lately. And I can certainly see why - the striking and graphic look is appealing in more ways than one.

See what I mean - aren't those fabulous?
I've been toying with my own DIY version for the nursery. I'm not going to decide on art until I have the room pieced together but in the meantime I thought I'd share a draft for your downloading pleasure. Not nearly as gorgeous as some of the beauties above but could be a fun in the right spot.

  8. Me too.  If you want a big one you might try to DIY one - you could probably do a pretty good giant version with a little paint and some decoupaged letters/penguin.  I would do a giant one for the nursery if wall space wasn't quite so precious.

    That Alanna Cavanagh art is kind of incredible. I'm tempted to try making one myself.

  21. You can also buy the postcards, http://www.amazon.com/Postcards-Penguin-Hundred-Book-Covers/dp/0141044667, and do a collage, as you can see not yet hung up in my apt. here: http://nervous-breakdown-hat.tumblr.com/post/26762264880/the-housewarming-party-was-a-success-both-in-that.

  22. I always fondle those postcards when I see them in bookshops. I would think by the time they were framed en masse, it would end up costing almost as much as a large print though. Not sure.
