East of Eden is one of my very favorite classics. One that I was happy to discover is a part of Kathryn Macnaughton’s series of Steinbeck cover art for Penguin Books UK. Kathryn is a Toronto based illustrator/graphic designer who combines shapes, photos and illustration to create beautiful work.
Archives For Classic Book Covers
I’ve been reading, or rereading a bunch of the classics lately. In doing so, I stumbled across these beautifully illustrated book covers by Mikey Burton. They’re a box set that he designed as part of his theses at Kent State. As far as I can tell, the set “Rest, Relax, Read” is not available for purchase. Bummer! You can however purchase the cover art on a t-shirt, from the guys over at Out of Print. You can also read a little more about Mikey in the interview that FaceoutBooks did with him.
