Penguin is celebrating 85 years of design and illustration heritage with five commemorative prints designed by Charlie Mackesy, Coralie Bickford-Smith, Dapo Adeola, Jackie Morris and Vashti Harrison.
Specially commissioned from five leading Penguin artists, illustrators and authors, these beautiful prints – themed around the transformative power of books and reading – are perfect for book lovers and art enthusiasts alike.
Priced at £85 each, the framed prints are available to buy here for a limited period of 85 days, with all profits supporting the work of the National Literacy Trust.
You can purchase a piece of design history and help transform the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children and families.
COVID-19 is set to have a disastrous impact on the literacy and life chances of our most disadvantaged children. The literacy gap between disadvantaged children and their peers is expected to skyrocket, with widespread school and library closures limiting many children’s access to learning and books. This could hold them back for the rest of their lives – unless we act now.
The money raised through the sale of these prints will allow the National Literacy Trust to continue to support the literacy of children who have been most seriously affected by COVID-19 and ensure that no child is left behind.
About the prints
Each art print is 30x40cm, printed on matt smooth fine art paper, with a mount and a responsibly sourced solid wood frame with a smooth black satin finish. They will be produced by specialist art printers, King & McGaw.
