The Books: Tattooed Penguins

Notes on a Scandal Penguin books

The London riots found that people certainly don’t loot books (well, you need to browse really, don’t you? You can’t just go in and grab), but does anyone still actually buy them? The smart people over at Penguin certainly seem to think so, even if it is more in a ‘collectors’ kind of way, which is why they have commissioned the world’s top tattoo artists to come up with covers for books that you already own. Our favourite is the really rather brilliant Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller but you can also get The Rotters’ Club by Jonathan Coe, The Book of Dave by Will Smith, High Fidelity by Nick Hornby and White Teeth by Zadie Smith. They will set you back ten golden coins a piece.
