Penguin Prints

5 available

Harland Miller’s iconic Penguin prints are modeled after vintage book covers from the Penguin publishing house. The photorealistic still lifes feature careful brushstrokes that mimic the look of a well-loved book, creased at the bindings and dog-eared at the edges. The nostalgia-inducing book prints feature titles of classic novels as well as Miller’s own, which often feature subversion, sarcasm, or irony, and are a standout example of the author-slash-artist’s practice of combining image and wordplay. Cheerful-looking Penguin logos (usually inverted from the original logo used by the publishing house) sit below provoking titles—“You can rely on me, I’ll always let you down,” “I’m the one I’ve been waiting for,” and “Death, what’s in it for me?” are a few examples.
