Who doesn’t love a good book cover redesign? No one — particularly when the redesigned books are ones you’ve been meaning to read all along (or already love). Recently, Penguin Essentials released a new swath of redesigned modern classics, with great cover designs from a wide range of artists. Richard Bravery, senior designer at Penguin said, “Our approach is different to the Classics series approach; we’re trying to bring the books to a new audience so we’ve used contemporary artists from around the world and almost treated the titles as new books.” The results are pretty great.
