You know that IKEA book shelf you did battle with over the Easter bank holiday? The one that robbed you of most of the skin from your knuckles? 

This is what it's been missing: a book series worthy of your valiant exploits.

Penguin has commissioned graphic designer and illustrator Manuja Walda to create 40 illustrations for a new series of Shakespeare Classics.

Each cover employs Walda's a glorious minimalist, line-based style: bold depictions of characters, scenes or themes central to each work.

Have a browse through the gallery of covers below. You can add them to that shelf here
