Loving ... Recovering the Classics
I found Recovering the Classics via Swiss-Miss and instantly fell in love. Recovering the Classics is a crowdsourced collection of original covers for the greatest works of fiction in the public domain.
Unfortunately The Hobbit is still under copyright ... but there are some fab books covered within this collection.
Take HGWells' "The War of the Worlds" for example ...
They currently have 12 different covers ... each with unique artwork like this one from Luis Prado:
... or this one from Kjell-Roger Ringstad:
If you like book design, I would highly recommend the Recovering the Classics collection ... especially considering the covers are also available as prints.
Well worth a look.
