Classic Book Covers Revamped As Street Art [Pics]

Literary classics are made more appealing to the younger generation.

Penguin UK Books has decided to revamp the covers for ten literary classics by employing the help of ten world-renowned street artists. As you can imagine, the result is a striking visual impact with rock solid content to back it up.

Some of the books included in the series are Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Jonathan Coe’s What a Carve up!, Nick Hornby’s How to be Good and William Boyd’s Armadillo.

The street artists came from all corners of the world including people such as Belgian-born ROA, Australian The Yok and many more. Each of their unique styles brings a fresh perspective to familiar stories.

UK bookseller Foyles even held a launch event for the new series of redesigned books at London’s Southbank, a hub of street activity in the city.
