THE JOURNEY OF THE PENGUIN: BOOK LAUNCH & SIGNING
To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Penguin Books, WNW Member and Milano-based artist #5032 Emiliano Ponzi wrote and illustrated The Journey of the Penguin, released October 27th. The book tells the story of a lonely Antarctic penguin, dreaming of adventure, who sets off on a long swim north. Arriving at last in London in 1935, he encounters the chance of a lifetime: auditions are on to find the face of a brand new publishing house.
On November 18th, there will be a book launch and signing at the Society of Illustrators in New York. Emiliano, Paul Buckley (Penguin Books creative director) and Chris Russell (Penguin Books editor) will present The Journey of the Penguin for the first time together.
