I am not anxious to give you the truth, but I am very anxious to have you understand that all truth and power are feeble to you except your own.

While we’re busy with our own Steinbeck agenda, we’d like to share the amazing work our colleagues at Penguin UK (thepenguinclassics) have been doing. This new series, featuring key characters and quotations from Steinbeck’s work, is a truly impressive tribute. Check out Design Week for Penguin UK Art Director Jim Stoddart’s thoughts and inspirations behind the covers.

Many Red Devils-Stephen Crane

Many Red Devils ran from my heart
And out upon the page.
They were so tiny
The pen could mash them.
It was strange
To write in this red muck
Of things from my heart.

A Nursery Rhyme (final revision)

Where did you get your typewriter from?

Ebay haha. You need to be careful about buying typewriters on ebay though because you can’t be there to test them out of course. I had to take mine apart and clean the insides—-also had the outer shell resurfaced to get the major scratches out. It was a lot of work but definitely worth it in the end.
