Without question the single most beautiful creations ever – classic Penguin covers – are coming to China.

Featuring hundreds of original and rare book jackets and artwork, the exhibition is a celebration of British history, design, literature and culture. This exhibition charts not only the changes in tastes of readers, but chronicles a history of international designs. Work by the world’s top graphic, fashion and design talents will be featured, as well as author events, designer talks, children’s sessions and much more.
