Contemporary Illustrations for Famous Novels

California-based artist Paul Rogers, who we were introduced to via Lost at E Minor, recently illustrated Jack Kerouac’s Beat Generation tale On the Road page by page (after the jump). The line drawings feature excerpts from the 1957 novel and offer an alternative view of the familiar and influential story. The work inspired us to search out other illustrations of famous novels — those stories that didn’t necessarily contain images to begin with, but have been brought to life by contemporary artists.
