Speaking to the Past: A Penguin 75th Anniversary Project by Douglas Coupland

Another brilliant project coming through from Penguin:

Last month I installed new bookshelves in a room in my house. They're black, and my painter offered the unsolicited opinion that they might look depressing when completed. I knew he was wrong because, at the very least, the paperback shelf couldn't help but have a cheerful orange zing a zing that comes from the Penguin spine, the most wonderfully insidious default interior design statement in our culture. Even crack dens glow with Penguins on the shelf.
