This publication is a record of the Study Day at the Victoria and Albert Museum on Saturday 18 June 2005.

During 2005 Penguin celebrated their 70th anniversary with a new biography of Allen Lane and a comprehensive overview of Penguin design (Penguin by Design) by Phil Baines.

There was also a display through the summer at the V&A and the PCS organised a Study Day to coincide with, and support the display.

With Phil Baines presiding, John Miles, Romek Marber, Jerry Cinamon, Derek Birdsall, David Pelham and Jim Stoddart – and many more designers and former Penguin Staff in the audience – it was a memorable event and a unique celebration of Penguin design, the essence of which is captured in this publication.

Paperback, B format with french fold, 12.9 x 19.8 cms with many illustrations.
