Via the fair Very Short List, we have learned of the perfect gift for the designer in your life this holiday season. Seven Hundred Penguins walks you through the astounding 65-year history of the Penguin Group by perusing 700 paperback covers, which have been lovingly reproduced with every nick, ding and dog-ear a paperback book might possess.

Sample pages, er, covers can be seen here, and just from that sampling, we’re pretty sure you’ll be able to plow through this tome in one sitting. Ah, now that’s some perfect light reading.
