Retro Penguin Paperback Covers #27

I find myself in something of a quandary… you see, I’m nearly out of Penguins, which destroys the illusion that I have an endless supply. This means that soon I may have to find something else to post each week until my stocks replenish. The number of people who come and check these beautiful designs out each week is really heartening and I thank you for it. Even if the Penguin posts go away for a little while, please stick around because they will come back. You can find all previous entriesĀ here. Have a wonderful weekend.
