Pelican Project


The Pelican project' is an online project of the London-based 'things magazine', offering an online exhibition of a complete archive of the covers of the Pelican paperback books range (1937-1985). These books were produced by the non-fiction sister imprint of the famous and influential Penguin Books. The exhibition offers a complete collection of all known covers, and is ordered by decade and then by year. Covers can be easily browsed by thumbnail image, which leads to a medium-sized scan of the book cover.
