#PenguinRandomArt Featuring Harland Miller
Renowned UK artist Harland Miller, who gained notoriety for his original paintings on large canvases inspired by Penguin Books cover designs, has completed a number of new Penguin book-themed paintings. Commissioned by Penguin Random House Chairman John Makinson and donated by a Penguin business partner pre-merger, this original artwork is in the process of being installed at Penguin Random House locations worldwide, including 375 Hudson Street in New York as well as offices in London, Toronto, Australia, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
In celebration of this unique marriage of art and literature, a global social media event is unfolding as we herald the arrival and installation of these paintings with photos and messages on our Twitter and Facebook pages as well as our Penguin Random House websites.
