— Puffin Designer Classics

To follow on from Penguin’s original Designer Classics series of Limited Edition versions of their most popular or enduring titles, Puffin’s now reach their own 70th anniversary and commemorate it with books repackaged by six of today’s greatest design and style icons.

The design for ‘the Secret Garden’ – shown here (along with Anthony Gormley’s illustration for his cover of ‘James & The Giant Peach’) – by celebrated book designer Lauren Child is but the most intricate of the six beautiful designs.

‘I thought it would be interesting to do a cover where one could peel back the paper layers, one by one until the garden and the girl are revealed – it was just a nice way to conjure the secretness of the garden.’
– Lauren Child
