Recently, Penguin UK released their latest series of classic book cover redesigns, The Penguin Street Art Series. For the project, the publisher asked ten street artists to redesign the covers of contemporary classics with their own urban spins. As it turns out, street art doesn’t look half bad on book covers. Inspired, Flavorwire sought out both the new Penguin covers and other street art-inspired book jackets from over the years.
