I’m a self-proclaimed lover of classics – classic films, operas, novels – but in light of today’s constant deluge of new content, I find that the discussion around these cultural touchstones of yesteryear often devolves into apathy and eye-rolls from my friends, family, and peers. Motivated by a desire to make these classics more relevant to a younger generation, I set about reimagining design-led covers for a suite of classic novels that cater to a more contemporary, accessible aesthetic, telegraphing what makes each story beloved through simple, primarily typographic means.
