Loving the Mikey Burton Thesis Project


I am in awe of these gorgeous cover designs by Philadelphia designer Mikey Burton. He summarizes the set as "An integrated branding campaign based around the illustrative reinterpretation of classic book covers directed toward junior-high-school students." To see more photos, visit his Flickr page here. (thank you Robert Allen for sharing this story with me!)

  1. These are extremely cool. It's impressive that he was able to modernize each cover while still staying very true to the themes of each book. So many classics just get a picture of the author on the front or a rehash of a previous cover. Hopefully, these will help readers realize how timeless many of these books are.
