The hardest thing about visiting An Ode To Penguin was resisting picking up every single copy to admire! Books are beautiful on their own but this collection of over a thousand titles showcases Penguins from different series since 1935, and it’s really something to take in so much art and book history all at once. Some interesting titles — China in the year 2001 (a prediction of communist China’s future published in 1970), A Dissertation on Roast Pig, and a hand-embroidered cover of Lady Chatterley’s Lover designed by Paul Smith!

    1. hi steffie! this was an exhibition at The Arts House here in singapore which has since closed. it was put together by the owners of a local independent bookstore though, and their shop is a lovely must-see! most of the newer titles should still be in their shop. it’s called Books Actually, and i’ll be happy to show you there the next time you and patrick come to singapore :)
