Art, Design and Culture: the History of Penguin by Design

The Bookworm is thrilled to be co-hosting two author talks with Penguin as part of a landmark travelling exhibition. First displayed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the history of paperback design is in Asia for the first time, visiting Beijing, Hangzhou, and Seoul, South Korea. Featuring hundreds of original and rare book jackets and artwork, the exhibition is a celebration of British history, design, literature, and culture. Author events, designer talks and children’s sessions will take place around the central exhibition at The Temple Hotel.
