One conversation with Andy was enough to inspire a whole new way of working. With their help I went on to get a first.

    • Yes, I thought you might appreciate them Alison. Phil’s book is wonderful and features cover designs from endless Penguin books published over 70 years. I have a small collection of them myself – odd to collect books because of their covers rather than their contents.

      • Yes, but I do the same thing. I’m trying to decorate at the moment (which is why I’ve been offline) and I’m thinking of putting up a few narrow shelves – to display some books outwards. You know, like in schools. Then you could change the display around.
