Old classic, or modern reinterpretation? We have blogged previously about the Penguin Donkey shelf (left), but did you know that it has been reimagined twice since then? The Penguin Donkey 2 was designed in 1963 by Ernest Race, (center), followed by the Penguin Donkey 3 in 2003, designed by Shin & Tomoko Azumi (right).

Bigger photos, below. The Original Penguin Donkey, by Egon Ross. 1939.
