I Am The One I’ve Been Waiting For

I Am The One You’ve Been Waiting For is a set of prints by Harland Miller, created between 2011 and 2013, all of which are based on the dust jackets of Penguin books. In the Penguin series, Miller takes the familiar format and motif of the Penguin books title page, and substitutes his own title, which is often sarcastic or witty and occasionally carries with it some kind of social critique.

Meaning & Analysis

An archetypal Miller adaptation of the classic Penguin book jacket, I’m the one I’ve been waiting for captures both his wit and his painterly style. The I Am The One You've Been Waiting For collection itself includes a signed Giclée print in red (2011), a yellow screen print (2012), a red and yellow variation (2012) as well as a deckchair (2013) and beach towel (2013).

Best known for his creative reinvention of the Penguin dust jackets, which he began in 2001, Harland Miller's prints often carry social or political critiques alongside their wit and typically dark sense of humour. With Rothko-inspired blocks of colour dominating works like I'm the one I've Been Waiting For, this print is emblematic of how Miller explores the visual relationship between the abstract, bold background and text, alongside the more conceptual implications of the written word.
