Harland Miller

Harland Miller is a writer and artist who was born in Yorkshire, England in 1964. As a visual artist, he is best-known for his large-scale paintings and prints of Penguin classics. Miller’s works often feature dark, humorous titles of his own invention rendered on iconic Penguin book covers. The influence of Pop art and its characteristic social critique on Miller’s work is conveyed by the manner in which he combines text and images to create poignant compositions. The larger-than-life book jackets draw inspiration from the works of Robert Rauschenberg and Ed Ruscha. Miller’s works have been exhibited world-wide in cities such as London and New York, and his work resides in the permanent collection of the Tate Modern in London.
