When it turned 60, the honchos behind the Penguin Classics literary series celebrated the occasion with some high-concept art thing: five noted designers were invited to remake the covers of their favorite volumes (Manolo Blahnik on Gustave Flaubert!), which each received a limited printing of 1,000. This year, as the series turns 65, the party favor is more plebeian: Penguin persuaded crossword constructor Ben Tausig, who writes the Reader's (and other alt weeklies') excellent Inkwell puzzle, to edit The Penguin Classics Crossword Puzzles, which went on sale today.
