Episode Summary

This week, I’m joined by Coralie Bickford-Smith, who works in house at Penguin Books as a book cover designer and has also written and illustrated the beautiful children’s picture books, The Fox and the Star and The Worm and the Bird. Coralie has an impeccable eye for colour and pattern, and she’s responsible for the gorgeous covers of so many of my most-loved Penguin series, including their Clothbound Classics, the Penguin English Library paperbacks and the pocket-sized Great Food series.

In today’s interview, I ask Coralie about how she got started at Penguin, the creative process behind her designs, where she goes when she’s seeking inspiration and so much more.

It was lots of fun to chat to Coralie, and I know this episode will be fascinating for anyone interested in beautiful books and superb design.

Listen to learn more about what it takes to design memorable book covers.
