Harland Miller (b. 1964) is a British contemporary artist famed for his series based on Penguin book jackets. Incorporating their familiar color and design, Miller replaces the text with comically absurd or melancholic titles, often reflecting the North East of England where he grew up. With this series, Miller combines his love of literature with elements of abstraction and Pop Art, to create works that are a satirical commentary on life and the written word.

The In Shadows I Boogie (Blue) limited edition box set comprises an etching and book, both signed and numbered by the artist, presented in a bespoke gift box. Please contact the gallery with any questions.

The Artist

Harland Miller

Harland Miller is a British writer and artist working both in Europe and America since the 1980s. In 2001 Harland Miller produced a series of paintings based of the dust jackets of Penguin books. By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller found a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer’s love of text. The ensuing images are humorous, sardonic and nostalgic at the same time, while the painting style hints at the dog-eared, scuffed covers of the Penguin classics themselves.
