Classics Redesigned by Doedemee

I came across this amazing collection (100 to be exact) of new covers for classic/iconic books; 28 artists from around the world have created new artwork for some of literature's best loved works to raise money for a charity that works to fight illiteracy: brilliant!

These are some of my favourites, you can see the full 100 here.

 1984 by George Orwell & Atonement by Ian McEwan
 Catch 22 by Joseph Heller & Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
 Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes & The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
 The Good Soldier by Ford Madox Ford & Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
 Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie & (The Strange Case of) Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
 Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy & L.A. Confidential by James Ellroy
 The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera & Little Women by Louise May Alcott
 Lord of the Flies by William Golding & Moby Dick by Herman Melville
 To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee & Nostromo by Joseph Conrad
 One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez & On the Road by Jack Kerouac
 A Passage to India by E. M. Forster & Tin Drum by Günter Grass
 The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope & Ulysses by James Joyce
Last, but not least. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

The covers are also available as posters. I think they're stunning, what do you think?
