Contemporary covers for classic books


The following collection of images begs for a witty turn of the phrase, "never judge a book by its cover". It's screaming for it.

But it's Wednesday and we've used up all our witticisms writing about fathers, so we'll keep it blunt.

These book covers by Brussels-based artist Levente Szabó make us want to read books. Or rather, they make us want to stare at the covers of books, soaking up their glorious artistry and reflecting on their success at capturing the central elements of each novel.

In short, "Phwoar, check out the cover on that".
