PCLD Uses Penguin Style Covers to Promote Libraries

As you know, we here are The Book Haven simply worship creative retro covers. We have made many posts on how websites, movies, or new books would look as vintage paperbacks. Here is another instance, which comes with a noble purpose.

To make people aware of the benefits of using a library card, Ann Leonard, the librarian at Pinal County Library District (PCLD), has designed 30 elegant graphic images. Check a few of them below. You can see the complete set on Pinterest.

Do the images remind you of something? Yes, of course they do. They have been inspired by the iconic Penguin/Pelican covers, which were designed by Italian art director Germano Facetti. We hope that Ann’s covers will be a success and revive interest in libraries.
