Korean Larsson & Last Reds

Two things here: first of all, following up these, here's the Korean version of the first Stieg Larsson book, designed by Turkey-based Anton Khodakovsky, and with the creepy painting (also used on the French edition) by Isabel Samaras.

Secondly, here are the last four covers of the next series of Penguin (RED)s...

..and here are the ones I posted earlier. See here for the first series, and the rationale behind the books.

The Flaubert is still far and away my favorite.

The Thackery would make me read Vanity Fair even if it wasn't one of my favourite books already.

Bob, I think I agree--it's pretty much perfect.

Kay, I know what you mean--I love Vanity Fair, and it makes me want to trade in my copy for that one, though that's something I'm trying not to do any more.
