  ecatalogue.indd 128/1/11 16:01:56    ‘A classic is the term given to any book which comes to represent the whole universe, a book on a par with ancient talismans’  Italo Calvino   ecatalogue.indd 228/1/11 16:02:00  Contents    A Short History of Penguin Modern Classics  4   A–Z by author        A–Z by title      Mini Modern Classics       Penguin Particulars  74  ecatalogue.indd 328/1/11 16:02:00    A Short History of Penguin  Modern Classics Penguin Modern Classics were born in  , when the renowned Penguin editor Tony Godwin decided that the great authors of the twentieth century – such as James  Joyce, Joseph Conrad and Evelyn Waugh – had achieved the same classic status as Homer or Dickens, and that the reading public who enjoyed them deserved a sepa-rate list of contemporary, beautifully designed editions. The result was Penguin Modern Classics, with their distinctive grey spines and evocative pictorial covers. Many of them were given eye-opening, avant-garde images by the legendary  s designer Germano Facetti  – a look that, after various incarnations, still inspires their current design. The first books ever pubished in this new series – including Franz Kafka’s  Metamorphosis , Carson McCuller’s The Heart is a Lonely Hunter  , F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby  – are still considered land-mark classics, read and loved today. ecatalogue.indd 428/1/11 16:02:01
