I have previously made some other, nature-inspired Penguin Classic Covers for a selection of Elizabeth Goudge’s most-beloved novels, and decided to make another round, just for the Eliot Chronicles, which were also among the earlier set. This one is, however, inspired by art.
Elizabeth Goudge is one of my favourite writers. She’s frightfully underread, but much appreciated and cherished by those who are familiar with her books. Some publishing houses have, in the last few years, published very pretty new editions of her books, which fortunately introduce her to a modern audience—including me.
However, I thought it would be fun to create Penguin Classics Covers for some of her novels. They are classics to me.
