One-of-a-kind collections

And now for something completely different…

♥ … like this collection of incredible, one-of-a-kind bindings for classic works. They’re all quite clever, so it’s hard to pick a favorite. I smiled the most at the cover for Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

♥ … like this list of banned baby names in New Zealand. I get why certain names, like Lucifer or 89 or Mafia No Fear, would be on the list. But what’s wrong with Honour and A.J.?

♥ … like this project re-imagining historical figures as they would look today. A modern-day Elizabeth I reminds me of SWINTON… which is really cool, actually. Screenwriters, get on that.

♥ … like this other art project of graphing color schemes of classic novels according to their color references. The artist is willing to take requests… might I suggest some Jane Austen?

Can you guess which book this is?
