Designed in 1939 by Egon Riss, the Penguin Donkey is a much sought after piece of modern design.
Only 100 of the original design were made.
Designed to house about 80 Penguin paperbacks with a central well to hold magazines and newspapers, the design was named the “donkey” because of its four legs and two panniers. The original donkey was advertised in every Penguin paperback but production ceased shortly after the outbreak of the Second World War. In 1963 Ernest Race designed this version -  The Isokon Penguin Donkey Mark II and this piece comes with the original factory sticker. For more information please contact
