Behind the scenes at Penguin Books
The Literary Fiction Communications Team

We love the Sorted Books project by Nina Katchadourian.

'I am always paying attention to the physical qualities of the books, and I try to work with their particular attributes as much as possible. The size of a book carries temperament and tonality, as does the way the text sits on the spine. A heavy volume with large text on the spine, for example, might be exuberant, urgent, pushy; a small typeface might communicate a voice that’s exacting, shy, insecure, or furtive.'
