A cross between a coffee-table and a reference book, this handsome volume collects all the titles from the vast Penguin Classics range.
I was spurred to read this as I was looking for a complete list of Penguin Classics online, only to find that there is so, so many at this stage, and found this. Laid out by era and geographical location, this invaluable guide tells you a little about each volume, and its author, as well as showing you the cover, as well as sometimes the previous covers.
A fascinating book to read through, and for the more adventurous – a reading list that will take years to check off – at the very least, it’s a feast for the eyes and will no doubt give you lots of ideas for new books to read.
You can reserve a copy online at South Dublin Libraries’ catalogue here.
