Manuja Waldia ’14 creates cover designs for re-released Shakespeare classics

July 18, 2016

Waldia, a newcomer to the publishing scene, was chosen for the project after a cold-call submission to Paul Buckley, Penguins Creative Director.  Buckley was impressed by Waldia’s work, specifically her daily icon project that she began while at MIAD, offering her the 40-book commission.manuja_waldia_book-cover_full

Waldia utilizes key words from the text to create symbols, giving the classic works a modern day look. The entire series is currently in publication; the first four are currently available for preorder.
