My mom picked up this book by Iris Murdoch to read the other day and I just loved the cover illustration on this Vintage Classics edition. The colour on my Instagram shot doesn't really do it justice. Wouldn't it make a cool poster? They sadly don't mention the artist, but it would seem that Vintage Classics is known for their modern and contemporary covers for classic English novels. Here are a few I particularly liked from their site:
I like that they keep to a very specific look for each author. The Medea one gives me the shivers, knowing the story, and the Kafka ones are perfectly, well, Kafka-esque. Have you read any of these? Do you ever judge a book by its cover?
