    Book covers for Penguin’s Mini Modern Classics series, designed by Jim Stoddart, Art Director of Penguin Press UK.

    “In 2011, on the fiftieth anniversary of the Modern Classics, Penguin is publishing fifty Mini Modern Classics: the very best short fiction by writers ranging from Beckett to Conrad, Nabokov to Saki, Updike to Wodehouse. Though they don’t take long to read, they’ll stay with you long after you turn the final page.” — Belgrade Bookshop
