Be My Cover presents the best among thousands of book covers designed, commissioned, and produced every year by Penguin Random House worldwide through its publishing houses. Acting within the cultural and visual communication of its time, book cover design contributes to the definition of our present-day society. Our selection gathers book covers published worldwide within the past ten years by over 15 imprints from Penguin Random House. This work has been created, or art directed, by 33 designers straddling the Atlantic, between the United States and the United Kingdom.

Curated by Fabrizio La Rocca with Roberto Maria Clemente

With the collaborations of Alison Rich, Phillip Stamper-Halpin, Sara Swartz, Daniel Vecchitto, Audrey Vuong, and the design team from FIONDA.
