The Pelican Shakespeare Series Design by Manuja Waldia



Continuing with the recent series design theme here on The Casual Optimist, creative director Paul Buckley let me know about new set of covers for the Pelican editions of Shakespeare. The covers were designed by newcomer Manuja Waldia, who studied Graphic Design at NIFT, New Delhi and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Waldia has been commissioned to design the entire series (which is a lot of book covers!), and as a Paul said, “she gives the last two male icon artists to do that (Milton Glaser and Riccardo Vecchio) a run for their money.”

  1. Are these gorgeous beauties going on sale at some point? & Specifically going on sale in Australia?

  2. I believe that the first ones go on sale in the US early in 2016. But I honestly don’t know if they will be widely available outside of America. I think Penguin Australia usually picks up the UK editions. Sorry.
