Pelican books...long gone
Bibliophiles and retro design fans will love the Pelican Project, an online time capsule of book covers from the (now defunct) educational arm of Penguin books. Lovingly curated by editor and journalist Jonathan Bell from his personal collection of Pelican books, the huge online gallery spans the decades from the 1930s to Pelican's final publication in the 80s. Delve into the collection and see for yourself the evolution from formulaic to fantastique at http://www.thingsmagazine.net/projects/pelican.htm .
