Books and Tattoos

Penguin Publishers has found a way to combine two of my favorite topics – books and tattoos – into one magical moment. Okay, actually six magical moments.

Penguin has created a new line of books known as Penguin Ink. Already published adult novels are getting a face lift with new cover designs created by tattoo artists. Paul Buckley is the design director for this new line.

The first six novels are being re-released at the end of June. They are:

Bridget Jones’s Diary
by Helen Fielding, cover design by Tara McPherson
Paperback: 9780143117131, $15, Penguin, Pub. Date: June 2010

Money: A Suicide Note
by Marin Amis, cover design by Bert Krak
Paperback: 9780143116950, $15, Penguin, Pub. Date: June 2010

From Russia With Love
by Ian Fleming, cover design by Chris Garver
Paperback: 9780143116943, $15, Penguin, Pub. Date: June 2010

The Broom of the System
by David Foster Wallace, cover design by Duke Riley
Paperback: 9780143116936, $15, Penguin, Pub. Date: June 2010

Waiting for the Barbarians
by J.M. Coetzee, cover design by Chris Conn
Paperback: 9780143116929, $15, Penguin, Pub. Date: June 2010

The Bone People

And in case you missed it in an earlier post, some adult Penguin Classics have been redone to have intricate typography covers in shades of black, white, and red – the red is to spark AIDS awareness, the cause behind the repackaging. Read more about the Penguin Classics here.

I've partnered with @readwithme_raleigh to teach a #writingworkshop for children & teens (age 9+) for 6 weeks this fall. Participants get a bound book of their story at the end of the workshop, and we have an author event just for them! If you're in the Raleigh, NC area and want more information or to register your child, email christine@readwithme.us
