Contemporary Takes on Classic Book Covers

You don’t have to be a lit geek to love these remakes of classic book covers, but the art resonates that much more if you’re familiar with the stories behind the works.

These prints are part of a crowdsourced collection of newly designed, original fiction book covers that live in the public domain. In fact, designers from around the world have participated in the project, creating this ultimately unique group of prints that speak just as much to a love for literature as they do a love for art.
