zadiesmithPenguin Books has teamed up with WeTransfer, a free file-transfering service, to showcase a series of Penguin book covers WeTransfer’s full-screen backgrounds.

The site , which counts 20 million monthly active users, will exhibit the covers of five of Penguin’s limited edition Street Art series. Titles in this series include:  Joshua Ferris’ Then We Came to the End (Cover: 45RPM); Nick Cave’s And the Ass Saw the Angel (Cover: ROA); Zoë Heller’s The Believers (Cover: Sickboy); Iain Sinclair’s American Smoke (Cover: Nathan Burton); and Zadie Smith’s Embassy of Cambodia (Cover: gray318).

Here is more about the designs from the press release:

The book covers, designed by leading artists including Sickboy, ROA, Nathan Burton and 45RPM,  will take over WeTransfer’s full-screen backgrounds in the form of multiple still life photographs displaying a range of Penguin authors. When people click on each of the photographs, they will be taken through to Penguin’s online store for further information.
