Check out the Pelican Project at the things magazine website.  It features photos of the book covers from Pelican the non-fiction imprint of Penguin Books.They may be torn and tattered but they have that recognizable design that can be traced from the 1930’s to the 1980’s.*

*According to Wikipedia Pelican was “originally founded in 1937,[1] Pelican Books combined important topics with clear prose to create inexpensive paperbacks for a broad audience. Before being discontinued in 1984,[2] Pelican Books published thousands of accessible, stimulating books covering a wide range of subjects from classical music to molecular biology to architecture. The imprint was relaunched in April 2014,[3] with the first five titles appearing in May.[4]
