FUN WITH BOOK COVERS

You must head over to Book Ninja and check out the results from the Book Recovering contest, where a number of folks took some well known pieces of literature, plus a few other assortments of published ephemera, and rebranded them through new cover designs. Of course this was often done in a deliciously subversive and ironic manner. The "recovered" version of Leonard Cohen's "Beautiful Losers" is awe inspiring to say the least!

I was so inspired that I had to design a one of my own. Here is my redesign for The Catcher In The Rye;


I think I will do a few more of these in the days to come. I would love to see some of the folks on my blogroll do the same if possible, so feel free to share your own mad creations of you feel inspired. ttfn
