Wall art using Postcards From Penguin: 100 Book Jackets in One Box. I've got postcards from the Puffin postcards box which I think preceded the Penguin box and rotate different postcards on a magnetic noticeboard in my office, but I've been a bit underwhelmed by the selection in the Penguin box. I may have to reconsider...

POSTCARDS FROM PENGUIN: 100 POSTCARDS IN ONE BOX! In 1935 Allen Lane stood at a train station, looking for a good book for a journey to London. His disappointment at the poor range of paperbacks on offer led him to found Penguin Books. Declaring that 'good design is no more expensive than bad', Lane was adamant that his Penguin paperbacks should cost no more than a pack of cigarettes, but they should always look distinctive. This set holds 100 iconic Penguin book jackets from 70 years of design.

D H Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928) was banned until 1960 when Penguin Books was acquitted of publishing an obscene book in both Britain and the US. It sold 2 million copies in that one year in just England alone. The governments of both England and America losing this case put an end to the censorship of literature.

Postcards from Penguin Modern Classics - Carson McCullens, photograph: Beltmann/ Corbis
Penguins Modern, Carson Mccullers, Lonely Heart, Carson Mccullen, Book, American Writers, Famous Writers, Women Worth, Lonely Hunter
It is hard to believe that The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter was the first book of a twenty-three-year-old author (who had started the novel at nineteen!). This tragic, small-town drama is so ambitious in its scope—presenting five radically different characters whose troubled lives intersect in the Depression-era South—it always seems like the work of a master storyteller. It's a compelling novel by Carson McCullers, and I read it when I was only 18.
Carson McCullers (Feb 19,1917-Sept 29, 1967) American writer of novels, short stories, plays, essays, & poetry. First novel, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, explores spiritual isolation of misfits & outcasts of U.S. South. Her other novels have similar themes & are all set in the South.

"When I split an infinitive, god damn it, I split it so it stays split". ~ Raymond Chandler, mystery novel author
"I said something which gave you to think I hated cats. But gad, sir, I am one of the most fanatical cat lovers in the business. If you hate them, I may learn to hate you. If your allergies hate them, I will tolerate the situation to the best of my ability." -Raymond Chandler, in another letter
