Amazing redesigned book covers

When is great design even better than usual? Well, when it's also for a great cause.

This awesome project pulled together 100 artists from 28 countries to create alternative book covers for some of the greatest books of all time. It's all to support the fight against illiteracy. We've selected 30 of our favourites to share with you below.

You can find the full list here, where you can also buy them.
