Penguin Poetry Classics

Last year I blogged about a great book on the design of classic Penguin books, called Penguin by Design, a history of the design of Penguin covers and I mentioned that I really liked the design of some of the Penguin poetry collections, with their patterned covers.

This is one of those books, featured in a collection of old Penguin covers in a Flickr set online here with some great covers I remember well. They seemed to have a great liking for green in the 1960s.
