Clive Hicks-Jenkins and a Penguin


I'm delighted to see that the new Penguin Classics design for Peter Shaffer's Equus is now abroad. Congratulations to him and to Penguin on a brilliant new cover. You can read more about Clive's long, long relationship with the play on his artlog (and my small, entirely unskilled part).

If you'd like to order a copy, a quick word of warning. The ISBN number doesn't necessarily change for a change of cover design and there has been a previous issue of Equus by Penguin Classics. Thus, if you order it from Amazon it isn't clear which cover you would receive at the moment. Order from Penguin directly to be sure of getting Clive's design.

Equus has been something of a feature on this blog too over the last few years and if you'd like to find out more then this link should cover it...

I should just warn I've had word at my website that although my version of the cover is currently the one on the Penguin Online Bookstore, people ordering it are getting the old edition by return... the one with Peter Firth on the cover. I suggest that anyone wanting a copy in the cover designed by me. wait until the problem has been solved. A bit of a shame, but there we are.
