The English artist and writer Harland Miller is renowned for his large-scale, playful reworkings of Penguin book covers. By blowing them up and giving them subversive new titles, Miller breathes new life into these classic book jackets, injecting them with contemporary satirical punch.
Miller’s current fascination is with Penguin Plays. “The jazzy Broadway-style branding of this series has a lightness and a level of unreality compared with the authoritative Classics,” says Miller. “The fact that they are plays suggests something larger than life.”
In this new body of works, Miller brings together his characteristic blend of humour, narrative and painterliness. The titles, rather than being quirkily self-referential, are the result of a collation of ideas and semi-somnolent memories: “Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, this one’s for you”.
