covering the classics

Shayna recently introduced me to Creative Action Network, "a marketplace for original, visual, meaningful work, crowdsourced from a passionate community of artists & designers around the world." She just finished a Muir Woods poster for their See America campaign.

They also have a Covering the Classics campaign, wherein designers can submit their cover interpretations of classic books; you can buy the book (printed by Harvard Bookstore) in paperback with the design you like, or buy it as a poster. Here are some standout choices:
Jack London's Call of the Wild; cover by Michael van Kekem
Bram Stoker's Dracula; cover by Steve St. Pierre
Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea; cover by Darrell Stevens
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes; cover by Ioannis Fetanis
Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels; cover by Naomi Sloman
Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter; cover by MrFurious
