Illustrated Collector's Guide to the Penguin Deluxe Classics

penguin deluxe spine set transparent

Introduction

This paperback series of ‘deluxe editions’ includes numerous world classics, featuring wraparound cover art by renowned comic artists, illustrators and graphic novelists. The volumes are glue-bound, but this is one of the rare series for which Penguin use acid-free paper (the others being their hardback books), and they are very nicely presented with matte paper covers made of a lovely dense card, wraparound art on French flaps (like a mini-dust jacket) and deckled page edges. They usually make use of up-to-date translations and include extremely valuable notes and introductions by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors. 

The books follow a mostly cohesive size and presentation structure, which seems to be primarily under the design direction of Paul Buckley, but there are lots of variations and different interpretations, which makes for a really fun shelf. There are also several sub-series within the collection as well, such as the Graham Greene Anniversary Centennials, the Couture Collection by fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo, the Penguin Threads Children’s Classics, and the Graphic Deluxe Edition titles which feature covers by renowned comic artists. I have a lot of fine press editions of the classics already in my library, but I find these paperbacks useful additions because of their affordability, notes, and how easily portable/lendable/annotatable they are.

I’ve listed the books in order of production because I enjoy seeing how the designs progress over the years, and have added in the most important details like who wrote the scholarly notes, which translation is used, as well as the cover designer if possible. If the books were published in different years across the pond, US date is listed first. I’m also slowly adding in the full cover art for each book in the series, so you can enjoy the whole design – clicking on the artwork on this page will open a larger version for you to look at. 

Source material and updates

There are various incomplete lists of this series bumbling around (such as this one on Book Depository or this one on Amazon), but they don’t include all the books. Even the supposedly official list on the Penguin Website contains numerous incorrect ISBNs, because they sometimes update books with details from their most recent edition even if it isn’t part of the deluxe series, and they drop titles off the list when they go out of print. So I have compiled this complete list of all the Penguin Deluxe Classics series for my own entertainment using my own purchasing history and library, publisher backlists, individual cover designer websites, Paul Buckley’s Flickr accountPenguin Classics: A Complete Annotated Listing, and a fascinating book on Penguin’s publishing history called Penguin Classics: Cover to CoverIt is also worth noting that there are a few titles I have identified below that that have different covers and annotations depending on where are they are released even though they naughtily use the same isbn, so your purchasing location may impact which edition you receive.

I regularly update the list as new books are released (including upcoming titles), and I do hope the list is useful to someone somewhere out there in the internet! This page was last updated in October 2020.
