Penguin releases its 100 Postcards from Penguin Modern Classics set today. We’ve just been playing ‘guess the author’ and thought we’d try six out on our discerning readership. Tell us who they are for a chance to win them!

The set features 100 images of Penguin authors – many are well known by name, perhaps less so by appearance. So first up, who are two chaps in the above photographs? And what about the two authors below?

And these two?

Let us know who you think they are in the comments below.

The first person to get all six right will win the postcards, PLUS a bonus card of their choice. You could have a Burroughs or maybe a Woolf (below), but we’ll let you know the full list of author photographs in order to make your choice.

We’ll share the answers and announce the results on Friday afternoon (tomorrow). If there’s no outright winner, the person with the most correct answers will win. If then there’s a tie… er, we’ll work something out. Away you go!

The set of 100 postcards is availabe from today, released by Particular Books; £14.99. More on the set, here.

Visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum’s autumn blockbuster exhibition, Post­modernism: Style and Subversion, 1970–1990, I had a minor epiphany in front of a chest of drawers. In 1978 Alessandro Mendini arranged to have an Art Deco cabinet decorated with a copy of an abstract painting by Wassily Kandinsky from the 1920s and an angular mirror […]
