Pelican books, the more sober imprint of Penguin, lack the flashy colour schemes or current resurgence of their ornithological brethren but in some ways are all the more delightful for that.

I don’t necessarily agree with Freud’s demonization of everyday experiences but the familiar three stripes and the Pelican roundel make it irresistible.
