Book publisher Penguin commissions tattoo artists to redesign the book covers to six classic novels.

Penguin Books chose six classical novels that were redesigned by well-known tattoo artists. The collaboration is part of Penguin Ink, an ongoing project to help celebrate Penguin’s 75th anniversary. The tattoo artists are asked to add their creative flare and imagination to the book covers in the style of body art. The results are unique, refreshing and inspiring.

This month, the six novels that underwent a ‘cover lift’ were Will Self’s The Book of Dave, Jonathan Coe’s The Rotters’ Club, Ali Smith’s The Accidental, Zadie Smith’s White Teeth, Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity and Zoe Heller’s Notes on a Scandal.
