Seriously the best book covers ever bar none

The Penguin Graphic Classics line is a reissue of classics of Western literature with newly designed covers by some of the greats of contemporary comics. Chris Ware on Candide. Tom Gault on The Three Musketeers. Chester Brown on Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Seth on The Portable Dorothy Parker. Ros Chast on Cold Comfort Farm. Julie Doucet on Little Women. Dan Clowes on Frankenstein.

Dan Clowes's cover for Frankenstein (detail from the dustjacket).

All together now: Oh. Em. Eff. Gee. (Zed optional.)
