Turning back to the good stuff, this is just a brief post to direct you towards this flickr set by book designer Paul Buckley. He has put up all of the covers (both front and full, including French flaps) for the complete set (so far) of Penguin's Graphic Classics books, where great works of literature get covers designed by some of the best comics artists currently working. Here's a taste--click for bigger, legible versions.
Edith Wharton covered by Jeffrey Brown.
Mark Twain covered by Lilli Carré (previously discussed here).
Shirley Jackson covered by Thomas Ott.
Herman Melville covered by Tony Millionaire.
Ken Kesey covered by Joe Sacco.
Franz Kafka covered by Sammy Harkham (previously discussed here).
Really, go and look at them in all their glory. They are a fantastic, beautiful set of books.
