They are not characters in a joke: A creative director, two of his designers and an author will share the stage to reveal behind-scenes-secrets of the making of book jackets. Afterwards they may walk into a bar together. Who knows?
Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich will moderate the evening in celebration of the publication Penguin 75, a unique book with the creme de la creme of the Penguin book jacket design world, complete with commentaries from authors, editors and designers. On the panel will be Paul Buckley, editor of Penguin 75 and Executive Vice President Creative Director at Penguin, joined by A.M. Homes is the author of numerous books, the most recent of which are the novel, This Book Will Save Your Life and the memoir The Mistress’s Daughter. Also on the bill will be Penguin book jacket designer extraordinaire Gregg Kulick and the super talented Jim Tierney; both who have illustrated many jackets under Mr. Buckley’s art direction.
