George Blonde is a London based artist. Inspired by his own large collection of Penguin Classics, he began painting his own version of these books to mark celebratory events (weddings, children’s births, anniversaries and much more) and to send heartfelt and humorous messages to friends and family.

To create the effect of a slightly worn vintage book, cotton canvas is hand painted and then subsequently silk screened. The canvas is then wrapped around an actual old book to produce a three-dimensional piece of unique artwork that is displayed in a beautiful box frame.
